Season 2 Ep 3 – Re-voice your melody
Let’s talk about chords…
We wrote a simple melody and lyric to use with examples of how you can easily expand the harmonic possibilities just by changing the chord sequence.
Example 1 uses the melody accompanied with just an Am chord.
Example 2 uses 2 chords Am and D9.
Example 3 starts the same melody on a different chord entirely with Fmaj7 to Dm7 to B Half dim to E#9,.
Example 4 is a more complex variation starting Am, F# half dim, Em7, Ebmaj7. Then we go Am, F# half dim, Fm7 Em7, Ebmaj7.
Example 5 Near the end of the epsiode we also try another variation of Am to C.
