(1) Do people look at you oddly when you're walking down the street, singing to yourself? (2) Do you drive your friends NUTS because YOU'RE NOT SINGING THE MELODY???

If you answered "yes" to the above, you're probably a Degenerate Harmonist, somebody with a good ear, who can sing along with almost anything, even if you've never heard it before-and manage to sound good.
This is for gigs, grins, giggles, recordings, etc.
It's entirely possible that you're a big fan of: Crosby, Stills & Nash; Simon & Garfunkel; The Mamas & The Papas; The Byrds; Dixie Chicks; maybe even the Everly Brothers and the early Beatles. Oh, and doo-wop!
Well, despair not. You are not alone, for I, too, am a Degenerate Harmonist. I admit it. I sing along to whatever's playing if it has even a hint of a melody. My CDs and downloads are heavy with CSN, Eagles and The Hollies, Steeleye Span and The Chad Mitchell Trio. But I can put a harmony to an awful lot of Green Day, too. Oh, and show tunes!
Where is this going you ask. Well, here's my answer: If you're a Degenerate Harmonist (or even a benign one), I'm looking for you. . . Let's get together for fun and fulfillment, with or without instruments, New music or classics. The 50s through the—well, whatever this particular decade is called. The naughts? The tens?
Anyone can be a soloist or lead singer. Maybe not a good one, but they can. But a group of like-minded fanatics who can't keep their mouths shut when particular songs come on the radio . . . well, that's something special and often magical.
No age limits, no gender preferences, species-neutral. If you can sing, hum, whistle, yelp or howl, well . . . who's perfect?
I wanna get together with you soon. Get a groove going. Find the magic center in a four-note chord.
