     BARBERSHOP CHORDS HAVE 4 PARTS IN A TTBB ARRANGED SONG
  • The Bass is the foundation of the Barbershop chord.  It requires vocal strength and range to hit the lower notes.
  • The Baritone is middle range and mostly harmony notes. It is considered the most difficult and important part to a 4 part Barbershop chord.
  • The Lead is also a middle range part which provides the melody. Many singers begin as leads but later move to another section more suitable to their voice and range.
  • The Tenor is the highest voice and completes the classic 4 part harmony of a Barbershop song. Most tenors sing in a falsetto voice and must have a good ear to keep the pitch in tune.
