nothing big, just basically singing intervals and ****.. seeing what sounds good.. not even a song. oos and ahs


but i have one question..

will the 3(or 4) of me being singing the same chords im playing on guitar?


whats the norm there?

... :P i know theory, and know i could try several different harmonic ideas here... the relative minor chord over my prog.. different voicings... blah blah


i just want to know whats the usual?

Basically that's one way to do it yes, each voice sings a different note from the chord, so one sings the roots, one sings thirs, one sings fifths etc.

The other way is to just experiment then reverse enginner, i can work out a harmony to pretty much any song I hear. It takes a while sometimes but it's good to experiment that way.

Try sing the 7 note chords apart.

What you can do is play the not on ur guitar and let it sustain while u sing over it too keep a constant pitch better, cause if ur unexperienced at this, you tend to sing in tune with the other notes of the chord.

By reverse engineer I mean just sing something that sounds good, then try to figure out what you actually did later

If you listen to enough music then you'll instinctively know what harmonies are supposed to sound like and you shouldn't have too much trouble replicating that.

lol but i assume english isnt your first language?

and by "7 note chords apart" i guess youre meaning the 7th?

meaning that i should make a dominant 7th chord..

alos.. like i said im a music major drop out.. so ive had 2 years of aural skills and pitch control...


steven: thanks! ill try that.. im a big fan of beatles and beach boys... so i think ive got some good inspiration.
