Watch the Harmonics for Melody Ideas online guitar lesson by Christie Lenée from Creative Fingerstyle Guitar for Songwriters

One thing I love about drop D is being able to use harmonics. Here I'll talk a little about how to get the most out of your harmonic technique, we'll point out the best areas of the neck for them, and discuss how to incorporate them into licks and riffs. Harmonics are another great way to think more "melodically" and less "chordally", which is great for breaking you out of the box you may find yourself in creatively from time to time.
