Watch the 10: Harmonizing Melodies online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Modern Method for Guitar
In this chapter I show you how to harmonize a melody. This is a good example of applying theory and technique to creating music, which is what it is all about. We use the first 8 bars of the song, "All of Me". We record the melody and build on the recording by adding the 3rd above and the 3rd below. We will start with 3rds since they are the most popular interval to harmonize with. For the following segments, see the video demonstration and the notation that follows.
