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.
