Melody Harmonization Lesson Description
In this lesson we're going to harmonize a one-note-melody with twelve different chords.
If you're curious about what chords go with what melody notes, or how reharmonization works, then this video should be helpful.
Here's what it covers:
- You'll hear and see the twelve chords that all harmonize one note (with clear chord diagrams)
- You'll hear the chords and melody together in time
- And just for fun I solo over the progression, so you'll hear and see what scales work with each chord for improvising.
I got this idea from the jazz fusion guitarist, Mike Stern. I went to one of his workshops many years ago and I've been using this technique ever since for improvising, composing, and arranging.
