Tags
Tags. If you're new to barbershop, perhaps you're not familiar with tags. Frequently in barbershop songs, the prettiest and smoothest chords happen toward the end of the song. We barbershoppers call the end of the song the "tag". And since tags can sound so cool when the chords lock in, many composers will write just tags as fun little songs to sing. They typically consist of only a few measures and a handful of words.

GQ4 loves to sing tags, especially when we get together with fellow barbershoppers at harmony schools, contests and conventions. This page provides some info on where you can get the sheet music for hundreds of tags. And if you're looking for a specific tag, search for it on this page by pressing Ctl-F. Happy tagging!
