Happy 4th of July from Canada my american brothers and sisters. I thought it was only appropriate since this year “Live Lesson Wednesday” fell on the 4th of July, we should learn the Star Spangled Banner. It’s actually a super easy melody to play in the key of G!
A melody is what the singer is singing. It’s what sits on top of the chords to a song. When you hum to yourself, that’s a melody. When you whistle, that’s a melody. A melody is the part of a song that gets stuck in your head.
Learning how to play a few melodies is essential to developing your voice as a musician. On the guitar we usually tend to play riffs, chords, and solos. Not melodies. If you sing and play guitar, then you have some experience playing melodies. But for those of us that don’t sing, we have to learn how to play a few melodies! Without knowledge and experience with melodies, your understanding of music will be very limited.
