Harmonizing The Melody

Hello All,

This week I’ll be showing you how to play the two harmony parts to the instrumental melody. To me, the harmonized melody is one of the coolest features of this song, and luckily, if you have internalized the regular melody with all of it’s crookedness, these harmony parts should come quickly. A good thing to practice is humming the main melody whilst playing the harmony. Because the phrasing is linked together you’ll probably be surprised at how it is to multitask these two elements.

Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions!
