💬 Lesson Description for This Video on How to Harmonize Melodies
People often make fun of three-chord songs, but some of the most well-known and timeless pieces of music only use chords 1, 4, & 5 - also referred to as 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 of the chords 1, 4 , or 5.
And it sounds beautiful :)
