Woodshedding Folio

Song NameComposer
Say Au Revoir, But Not Good-Bye
I Was Strolling Home With Jennie
Since Nellie Went Away
Only A Bunch Of Violets
I Love Only You
I Never Thought I'd Miss You As I Do
Baby Mine
When The Blue Sky Turns To Gold
Why Did You Say Good-Bye
Just Once More
Let Me Hear Those Good Old Chords
Where The Mississippi Flows
Good Morning Carrie
In Good Old New York Town
The Picture That I Love Best Of All
Break The News To Mother
What's The Use Of Loving If You Can't Love All The Time
Make A Fuss Over Me
Please Come And Play In My Yard
Look For Me When The Lilacs Bloom
Blue Bell
SomewhereLeonard Bernstein
When The Bees Are In The Hive
Hear What The Rose Is Saying
We'll Be Walkin', Huggin', Kissin'
For Old Time's Sake
She Waits By The Deep Blue Sea
The Uncle Sammy Girls
Like A Star That Falls From Heaven
Poor John

The origin of the word "woodshedding" is vague, to say the least. But from what little we know of the beginnings of the barbershop style of singing, it is clear that amateur quartets worked out the songs they sang by ear - a sort of trial and error method that became known as woodshedding. There is little doubt that the same is true of our early Society quartets -- they "woodshedded' the chords that supported the melody. Today, the written arrangement has almost replaced harmonizing by ear. While published arrangements offer more opportunities for more quartets to learn more music -- and at a faster pace -- it would be unfortunate if woodshedding were to diappear from the barbershop quartet scene entirely. So the purpose of this folio is to encourage men to participate in the woodshedding experience.
