Harmony Singing: Doo Wop to Early Rock

Discover the foundations of harmony in rhythm and blues, doo wop, and early rock, the bedrock of our present rock & roll music. Explore the stacking of voices, the stretched root lines, the bass voice pendulum, and the rich embellishments that characterize these vocal styles following in the footprints of such greats as Curtis Mayfield, The Mills Brothers, The Miracles, and The Beach Boys. We use no complex charts as it’s all done by ear.
