Watch the Drone Notes & Scale-Based Melodies online guitar lesson by Christie Leneé from Creative Fingerstyle Guitar for Songwriters

Melodic interludes can be a great way to get more creativity out of your instrument. By using a lower drone to hold down the fundamental, you can then use single note lines to create interesting sounding harmonized melodies. Give it a try!
