Create Melodies with Chords
About this Course
This course delivers a specific skill set of guitar techniques, the pivoting techniques, to help you develop very creative guitar accompaniments in your songs.
You will learn to make melodies with chords to match the emotional variations of the vocal line, to enjoy yourself even more in music, and open a pathway that will allow your inner creativity to flow seamlessly and therefore take your songs to a world class level.
What will you learn?
- After you have finished the course, the next time you see a Dm chord, you will no longer just strum it, but make it sound like what the pro piano player or orchestra would do, behind the vocalist of a song.
- You will never play a standard chordal shape in the same manner. Your first impulse or option, will no longer be to strum all the strings at the same time, but to choose from other better sounding shapes to create melodic lines that define the groove, the chord and harmonic context.
- You will be able to accompany with more or less intensity, playing chords with one note, two notes or three at a time, with more or less rhythm, in lower or higher registers, and always creating beautiful melodic lines.
- And, you will also be able to apply the pivoting techniques, in different styles, with different guitar sounds, in different modes and keys.
Does this ever happen to you?
How can you solve these problems and many more?
So, how can you solve these problems and many more? By applying my pivoting techniques, adding extreme melodic value to your accompaniment, reinventing your selected chords and making them pulsate, come alive.
As a result, your accompaniment will sound clearer, groovier. It will make the song sound more interesting. Furthermore, the accompaniment can now be louder in the mix and not have to sit in the boring background.
You will be able to repeat sections of a song and never get tired of them, as you will learn to create variations, to match the emotional contour of the vocal line in the soft and extreme emotions.
