In this lesson I explain what chord melody technique is and how it will enrich both your soloing and your accompanying. I also teach you the first step to building a complete chord melody technique on the guitar. Using the harmonic concepts developed in the book "Improvise for Real", we will learn to play any melody note accompanied by the root of the chord in the bass.
Learn the complete IFR method with the IFR Video Course for Guitar. In this course, we start from the very beginning and build a complete approach to improvising on the guitar. You will learn to improvise freely across the entire fretboard, to express your own musical ideas in any key and to create a wide variety of chords and harmonic environments on the guitar. No prior knowledge of music theory or the IFR method is required. Everyone is welcome!
