The overall musical approach in classical guitar style is to play the melody and accompaniment, the whole orchestration, of a piece of music all together at the same time on one instrument, the guitar!
Often in other styles the guitar is used as an accompaniment instrument. The result is that the guitar plays chords or lines, but another instrument (or human voice) carries the main melody.
Even when the guitar plays the main melody, it is ususally accompanied by other instruments playing the chordal and rhythmic accompaniment parts.
In classical, you have to do it all!
Polyphony is music consisting of two or more independent, simultaneous melodic voices, as opposed to an instrument playing with just one note at a time. Homophony is music consisting of one main melodic voice accompanied by chords or supporting harmony notes.
In the video I offer brief examples of each type.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
