Well yeah, ok. Maybe D4 is a little high for a significant low, even for her Razz

I even think C#4 and C4 are stretching it. Start at B3.

Yes, this is going to be a hard thread to finish. I quite like her music though, and all the best stuff is still to come in her 70s and 80s material. Though notewatching isn't as fun as just listening to an album for enjoyment Razz

As I continue notewatching I probably will cut them out when I find some more singing around B3 and lower. But for now it would look a little bare. Point taken though, C and C#4 aren't very low for anyone.

That moment when you mention a songwriter of one of the most covered female songs of all time yet don't mention that damn song....

It's already been explained why the C4 and C♯4 sections are staying for now.

Anyway, there's B3's, C♯4's, B4's, C♯5's, E♭5's and some high-sounding harmonies in Jolene.

G3, A3, B3, C3 for the lows.
Harmonised B4's, C5's, D5's and E5's for the highs.

My Father's Daughter:

F♯3's, B♭3's, B3's, C♯4's for the lows.
B♭4's, C♯5's and E♭5's for the highs. (Also there's a weird backing F♯5 around 2:19 but not too sure if that's Dolly)

9 to 5:

More notes than you need, but youknow;)
Happy to assist with further notewatching if you wish.
