Watch the Essentials: Chord Melody Etudes online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Essentials: Chord Melody Etudes
Thanks so much for getting this course. I hope it helps. We have gone over 8 etudes using some of the most commonly used progressions in jazz. We have gone over some chord melody techniques, how to use chromatics, neighboring tones, the importance of listening to the masters of chord melody, rhythmic alterations and new inversions. All of these techniques can be and should be used in all of your chord melody creations. You will notice a lot of similarities with chord progressions and especially these chord progressions we went through in the 8 etudes.
I encourage you to keep practicing and please remember to play these etudes and all chord melody really slow to continually work on tone production and cleanliness.
