Watch the 3rds Melody online guitar lesson by Charles Chapman from Interval Insights
Thirds provide one of the easiest ways to harmonize guitar melodies. Whether you play both notes or a second guitarist plays the harmony line, they are eminently useful.
In our performance, a melody harmonized in 3rds is heard for the first eight bars. Then a solo line enters, built entirely on the interval: single-note lines jump from one note to the next in 3rds, and doublestop 3rds interspersed throughout.
