Learning tracks sung by Daniel Gillis

Several years ago, a collection of 125 well-known Barbershop tags was compiled and published in booklet form.  This booklet has become the de facto standard of Barbershop tag singing.

More recently, Daniel Gillis from vocalharmonies.com (professional producer of fine a cappella learning tracks) went to the enormous effort of singing learning tracks for each of the 125 tags in that booklet.  He generously published them on his website - freely available for the Barbershop public to download.  This site would not be complete without including such a valuable collection, and Daniel has graciously allowed his learning tracks to be reproduced here.

All the tags below are complete with four learning tracks (plus an "All Parts" mix) and sheet music.
