While there are many ways to reharmonize, we will look at some key ways to do this in a compelling way.
This is an endless well of joy. There are so many ways to play a chord. We will look at a fews ways to make a decision and ways to open up your chord voicing knowledge. Triads? Seventh chords? Open chords? Spread voicings? So many options - let's dig in!
Bass movement is something that adds so much to a chord melody and is often overlooked. Let's uncover how this can be utilized as pass chords, embellshments, to add movement, and how it can dictate what voicing you choose.
One of the most important things to uncover. Tone is key. Let's discuss how to get a good tone and options for guitar effects pedals.
Building An Arrangement
Building An Arrangement
There are so many ways to approach this. Let's dig into how to build an arrangement from nothing. Chords, timing, archs, story telling. Oh joy!
I've taken a bunch of classes with Molly on TIL at this point and this was another one of my favorites. Dense but well paced. Lots to learn and dig into even after the class is over.
Dr Molly Miller is a brilliant teacher. This class helps guitarist see the process of how to build chord melody from a basic lead sheet. Dr Miller gives you tools so you can use this process to approach arranging your own chord melodies. While I couldn’t attend as many live classes due to a busy schedule, I am able to go my own pace with the class recordings. I highly recommend this class!
Really great class. I really enjoyed and learned a lot from the sequence of String Theory and Chord Melody classes that Molly gave. Chord Melody 2 is the most information rich and really helped opened my eyes to what tools and techniques are available to the player wanting to create their own Chord Melody. Plenty of practical material was provided onto which we could focus our study of the materials. Molly is very experienced in the material but also at teaching it so the classes are well structured and work feel very worthwhile.
Molly is an amazing guitarist and awesome teacher! I enjoyed so much the lessons even though my timezone didn't allow me to join live, I could feel the vibe and energy from the recordings :)
Dr Miller is a great teacher. She is always prepared and that motivates the student to put in the work.
Molly is THE BEST. It really is a rare treat to find someone so knowledgeable about guitar AND someone so equipped at teaching. My knowledge and playing level up with every class I take from her. Chord Melody 2 is high level stuff that Molly makes easy and fun.
