String Theory: How to Compose and Improvise Melodies Over a Chord Progression, Part 2
The following content is related to the March 2013 issue of Guitar World. For the full range of interviews, features, tabs and more, pick up the new issue on newsstands now, or in our online store.
Picking up where I left off last month, I’d like to offer two final melodic variations on my “Autumn Leaves Counterpoint” theme. Here, I’ll shift gears to smaller and thus “quicker” rhythmic values, or subdivisions, in order to demonstrate smart ways to add even more “melodic fill” between targeted chord tones within a progression, using a sort of “connect-the-dots” approach. The objective is to create satisfyingly logical-sounding, breathtaking classical-style runs that convery a sense of meaningful harmonic direction.
