barbershop's special chords and Voicings with david wright

Geek out about our special chords with Dr. David Wright, perhaps one of our most influential barbershop arrangers of all time. Long time barbershop singers might not be able to say what it is, but they know it when they hear it and sing it...those wonderful barbershop chords! But what is so special about our style, our voicing choices, and chord vocabulary? Let David explain how we are more than 6 chords in TTBB voicing.

how is "that" barbershop with kevin keller

Did you ever listen to a song during a contest, think “That isn’t barbershop?”, look on the scoresheet to see not only didn’t it get disqualified but it looked like the Music judges did NOTHING to it???!!!  How could that possibly be?  Well, we will explore that very thing.  We will go back to the earliest days of how our pioneers defined barbershop and compare it to how we define barbershop today.  We’ll listen to controversial performances throughout time and see what we think at the end.
