Do you have a method for working out harmonies?

First, I try to work them out by ear, listening to a recorded track of the melody and humming things over it to see what I like best. Usually, I can do that just fine but if there's a part or two that I have trouble with, I get my guitar out and find the melody note in the chord and try the other notes in the chord until I find one that works with the rest of the harmony line I'd been working on. I love writing harmonies... sometimes I do it for songs that aren't mine too, to hum along with in my car.
