We often think of harmony as a boring, dull and dry subject.
This is a shame, because the topic of harmony opens up and develops entire realms of your playing that no other topic can.
Harmony helps with your sight reading, fretboard knowledge, technique, musical understanding and more.
So how can you learn about harmony in a fun and engaging way?
By harmonizing a melody.
With the right tools and process, you can harmonize any melody quick and easy!
What's the advantage of learning this?
• Learn Harmony: Harmonizing a melody teaches you the most foundational uses of harmony, while giving you a beautiful result you can play and enjoy.
• Create: If you can harmonize fluently, you can create quickly - compose, arrange or improvise.
• Musical Technique: Your technique gets a great workout that focuses on musical building blocks, rather than just pure mechanics.
