How-To Guides for Zoom Singing
This post is part of a series intended to become a Mermaid’s Tavern Guide to Zoom Singing publication for folk arts organizations, feature artists, session singers, and online audiences for folk music. We welcome comments below.
This preliminary list of guides to Zoom singing is indicative of the huge demand for online singing and the success of Zoom as a platform for singers, despite the lack of real-time harmony. This list is actively being maintained and updated, so please add any additional links in the comments below.
Special mention is due to the San Francisco Folk Music Club for the breadth of their offerings, and to the Golden Link Folksinging Club for their clear and friendly style. Both have inspired me to follow their example, and I applaud their authors. Thanks for the inspiration.
