There is a group page on Facebook called "Barbershop Tags" that I was led to by an article that I read on BHS's publication called LiveWire. You might want to check it out for yourself by clicking on the following link:
Tags are short and sweat and it takes me little time to make a video version of one so that we can get an idea of what the tag sounds like. Here are two of them from the Barbershop tags Group page:
I started creating a list of songs on the Shows and Singouts page for the Ontario Division Christmas Benefit Concert. Once I learn what songs make up the medley we are going to sing with all the other choruses, I will complete this list.
The NWC and Video Versions of this song was originally created before I had learned how to put swing in without replacing all of the beamed eighth notes with a dotted eight note beamed with a sixteenth note. This caused the piece to play with swing in it but it made the music look too cluttered and difficult to read hence I put back the beamed eighth notes and added a swing staff below the score which causes the piece to play with swing using a series of tempo changes throughout each bar.
Those of you who are using the NWC Version with the Noteworthy Composer Viewer, will have to re-download the new NWC Version of Jingle Bell Rock.
The following four videos have been posted for the benefit of Vocal Federation members, except for the "My Old Kentucky Home" Tag witch was re-posted on the Odds and Ends page on the public side of the website for all to see and listen to.
My name is Doug Morley and I am a retired, paper mill worker from Kapuskasing in Northern Ontario. I am pleased to be a member of the Strathroy Vocal Federation and the Webmaster of their website.
