It was just several years ago that musicians still had to have a firm grasp on old world methods for practicing because there was no other way. If you wanted to learn or hear music, you had to sit down and play it or plunk it out on the piano.
Then came the era where, if you could notate music, you could enter music into Midi software and have a video game-ish rendition of the sound played back to you. Inevitably, instructional videos then started popping up online. And finally, after YouTube was created in 2005, soon any musician in the world could upload any instructional video they wanted. Welcome to the New World.
But having the equipment doesn't necessarily mean you know how to use it, or that you're any good at it. But that never stops the public. So the sheer depth of available videos means you have to sift through a lot of stuff to find someone who not only has good musicianship skills and has the ability to teach, but who is also crafty with the equipment.
His name is Galeazzo Frudua. I found his videos when I was searching for a study on Beatles harmonies; something where I could sing along as part of a group (me and the voices in the videos, together). On Galeazzo's YouTube channel he writes: "Here you will find a series of accurate tutorials which will enable you to discover all the hidden secrets of their performances and easily reproduce them so you can FORM YOU OWN TRIBUTE BAND play with your friends or cover their song or simply HAVE FUN playing them!"
The result of his efforts are easily some of the best vocal instructional videos out there. He has a lovely voice and walks you sensically through a number of Beatles songs, showing you how each vocal part works and giving you a chance to sing against the other vocal parts. It's done brilliantly.
I've sort of grown tired of the Beatles from listening to them so much over the years. But one of the aspects of their music that never gets old is their harmonies. They're so beautifully simple, independently lovely and simply fantastic when it all comes together. So if you like to sing, and you ever feel like singing harmony in a group, then these videos are an absolutely great start.
