billeyler: (barbershop chorus)
I accidentally stepped into the March Ask Me A Question meme when [livejournal.com profile] allanh asked:

"So what ARE the basic 12 songs a barbershop singer needs to know?"

First, here's the kind of singing we aspire to--


Here are the 'baby steps' a new Barbershop chorus singer needs to learn:

"My Wild Irish Rose"
"Wait Till The Sun Shines, Nellie"
"Sweet and Lovely (That's What You Are To Me)"
"Down Our Way"
"Honey - Little 'Lize Medley"
"Let Me Call You Sweetheart"
"Sweet, Sweet Roses of Morn"
"Shine On Me"
"Heart of My Heart"
"You're the Flower of My Heart, Sweet Adeline"
"Down By the Old Millstream"
"You Tell Me Your Dream"

Some of these I already knew the Bass part; some I just know the lead. A few I don't know at all and have to work at. I'm excited to sing with the New Mexichords after a 20 year absence!
