Vocal marriage correction

Professionalism comes over the years, but I want to sing well now.

And now the vocalist (this is at best) is already at the microphone, the red recording lamp lights up, and the song is pouring?

Polyphony is divided into types:

Sub-polyphony, in which along with the main melody its echo sounds, that is, slightly different options. Characteristic for Russian folk song. Continue reading
