Beginning Harmony Song

I have two 10 year old students (boys) who have been working on playing guitar together. This time I'd like to have them try singing some harmony together. Their playing level needs to stay around typical I-IV-V (I can also do a reduction if the song is basically that)

Any recommendations on a song that may be a good introduction would be much appreciated. Something that stays mostly in thirds or forths.

Don't know about thirds and fourths, but the harmony on the chorus of "Norwegian Wood" I think would be good for starters as would "I'll Be Back."

I say that because those are the songs that I first practiced my harmonies on!

"She Loves You" is pretty straightforward too.


"Into the Sky with Diamonds" (the Beatles and the Race to the Moon – a history)
