Watch the Chord Melody Techniques online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Modern Method for Guitar
In this play-along we apply the chord melody techniques we learned to the song "All of Me", playing through the song 5 times using the steps below. Refer to the video demonstration and the notation that follows.
1. Play the melody only.
2. End each phrase with a chord.
3. Start and end each phrase with a chord.
4. Play a chord on each melody note.
5. Next, I demonstrate how to use all the techniques together.
6. Finally, I increase the tempo and go through a couple of choruses as an example, demonstrating what can be done using these techniques. Rather than copy what I do, come up with your own chord melodies using these techniques.
