Everly Brothers “Dream” Harmony Vocals

While most of my videos will be for guitar lessons, I needed some vocal harmony practice on my own so I figured I might as well make a video of what I was practicing. Here is a lesson on the vocal harmonies for the song “All I Want to Do is Dream” by the Everly Brothers.

In the video you can hear each harmony part on its own so you can learn the part, then the video flips back and forth so you can practice each part.

Below are the chords to the song. Also, you can download a PDF of the vocal parts transcribed for those who want it.
