💬 Lesson Description

People often make fun of three-chord songs, but some of the most well-known and timeless pieces of music only use I, IV, and V (the three major chords of a key). 

In this simple video I walk through a delightful harmonization etude that maps out how every note in the major scale can be supported by either I, IV, or V.

And it sounds beautiful :) 

If you've ever wondered how to add the right chords to a melody then definitely check this one out.

I hope you enjoyed this lesson about Harmonizing melodies with I, IV, & V. Let me know what you thought in the comments.

Thanks! :)
