What is "four part harmony"?

Asked by stratman37 (8678points) September 17th, 2010

I know a little music theory, like a triad is a chord with three notes within the scale. But to make it a 7th, you’d add the 7 of the scale. So when a band is singing “four part harmony” (ala the Eagles; Little Big Town, etc) are they always singing different notes, or do they sometimes duplicate the tonic at a higher octave?
