Watch the Third Part: The 3rd Below online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Modern Method for Guitar
1. In this segment we will continue to apply the same concept. The only difference is that we play the melody notes a 3rd below the original melody.
2. For example: for the first phrase over the C major, count down 3 from the first melody note: 1-C, 2-B, 3-A. We identify A as the melody a 3rd below C.
3. Continue to apply this approach to the first 8 bars of the song.
4. Add this harmony over the recorded track of the other 2 harmonies to hear the 3 parts together.
5. Try other intervals using the same method. Remember to play in all areas of the neck, using all possible fingerings.
6. Next, harmonize the melody using all of the intervals and combinations of intervals. Identify the ones you like best and those you do not care for. This is how you begin to develop your own sound and style.
