Oh Mary, Don't You Weep | In this activity, you will try to "hear" when the tonic (i), subdominant (iv), and dominant (V) chords are used in the audio recording. You will then create a harmonization based on what you heard.
- Listen to the MP3 "Real." Try to "hear" where the chords change from i to the iv or V.
- Use the "Rhythm Worksheet" to mark the chord changes at the beginning of the measure where the changes occur.
- Use the MP3 "Melody" to check your ear by playing along using the root of the chord that you think is correct. Listen to see if your choices "agree" with the melody.
- Use "Worksheet 2" to write in your harmonization. Use one of the recommended voicings of the chords shown below.
