How to write a melody
Chords and harmony are an extremely important part of composition, but of course they’re aren’t everything!
Another important part is the melody, and it isn’t always easy to write a melody.
You might have found yourself from time to time, while playing the piano or the guitar, in the situation where you found a very interesting sequence of chords, and not being able to compose a vocal melody on which you could sing.
The “non-harmonic tones”
We will begin today with a series of video lessons that approach the so-called “non-harmonic tones”, which will help you a lot in composition and writing arrangements.
In today’s videos we will approach two themes in particular:
- Why are “non-harmonic tones” so important when writing music?
- What are non-harmonic tones?
