Playing with 4 Part Harmony

By | December 16, 2006

Playing with 4 Part HarmonyI’ve never tried this before, but I’ve always wanted to write some 4 part vocal jazz harmony. This is a test that I may use in the show I’m currently working on. It was challenging and fun due to the chromatic parts. The Alto part is horrible, but it all works together! I couldn’t really sing the parts because 1) one is too high, and 2) I’m doing this at 3 AM and I don’t want to bug my neighbors.

First, individual sketches on guitar. (For these mp3s you have to click once to get to the page with the file, then click again to hear it.)
