If you're like me, you have tried to sing a 3rd part along with these two geniuses for years, and have STRUGGLED. The craftsmanship of Simon and Garfunkel goes DEEP. Explore it with me and see why it is so difficult to sing a 2nd harmony part along with the masters.
Well, this is my family. The real us...just after we crossed the Mississippi River, headed across Iowa and into Missouri, on the way to John's grandpa's farm.

Songs: "I'll Fly Away" written in 1929 by Albert E. Brumley "The Star Spangled Banner" by John Stafford Smith and Francis Scott Key 1814
