  1. It seems to have been a long time since anyone has added/replied to this forum, so I'm not even sure if this will be read. But I love singing harmony - so much so that given the choice as a leader, I'd teach someone else the lead line, then lay down harmonies on top -- because the opportunities for creativity - once the melody is established - are vast! I loved an earlier posting exalting Art Garfunkel as a harmonist, because of his freedom to depart from moving thirds/fourths above the melody. I'll just add one BGV trick, and that is to underexecute 's's and 'p's, most especially in recording, sometimes even to the point of simply ending a word without those consonants. A group of people (more than 2) all laying down hard on sibillants and plosives (to use the tech term) can be a really harsh thing - better to avoid it!
  2. Greetings to all! I'm looking forward to building relationships with other songwriters and to exploring all the resources available through SongStuff. I've already found the support staff to be hugely helpful, and am pretty excited about what can come out of this. I'd especially like to connect with local folks in Tennessee and surrounding states, to support each other in writing and playing/performing out. Anybody in Nashville going to the Bluebird or the Commodore Lounge this month (meaning, July)? Looking forward to hearing from you! David
