Comments: Unfortunately, the Learning Tracks provided for this Tag contain a mistake in the Bass track. On the second-to-last chord (“my__”), the Bass should sing D-flat (Db) but is actually singing D-natural in the learning tracks, changing the chord from the written root-position Db6 to a first-inversion and thus weak-voiced Bb7. That messes up the intended emotional feel of the penultimate chord.

Basses, just remember to sing that penultimate note a semitone flatter than you hear on the learning track.

Correction to the note: The bass note of the learning is sung as E-flat, so it is correctly sung a whole tone lower than on the track.

Made with the Acapella App. I meant to sing it in Bb, but I actually sang it closer to B.
