M. Ted (inactive) What are you working on right now? (81* d) RE: What are you working on right now? 05 Oct 00


Mary--This is the sort of thing I wanted to bring out in this thread--so post away--best thing is when we get some helpful information out of someone who knows that everyone can use.

I love this song, as well, WXPN in Philly used to play the Sally Barker recording, some number of years ago, but I could never find the recording anywhere. You inspired me to check Napster, but the version their was timed out. I did get another Poozies song, and noticed that their harmonies were fairly simple--unison, then a drone on the fifth pops in and a harmony part pops in from time to time that seems stick close to the chord fundamental, only above the melody note.

I had an idea that for a multipart arrangement, you could get something close to their sound by starting the melody in unison, then having the voices hang on other notes in the chord as they hit them(4 voices in unison, when you reach the fifth, one voice stays on it, when the remaining three hit another chord note, one stays on that, etc--till you hit the end of the phrase with a big fat chord--if their is a chord change, you just have everyone move to the closest note in that chord to the one they are on).

It would be fun to try, anyway---
