I sat down to practice this, thinking that I probably would need 3 or 4 takes, but I'd better record it just in case I get a good one... and it turned out I didn't need any more takes! Harmonizing with myself is something I practice a lot. It works my brain out like crazy, and challenges me in a way nothing else does. My goals in doing this are always changing, but number one is to be true to myself and sing what wants to come out. After that, it's just "will I put the voice on the top or bottom?", "which intervals will I land on?", "which 'voice' should take the lead now?", etc. I hope you have fun watching and listening!
