In this lesson I play the complete melody harmonized with a bass line. This version is a counterpoint approach called polyphony. This means most of the upper register melody notes are countered by a lower register bass note. This results in essentially two melodic lines that work together. There are chords implied in these harmonized lines, but they are not fully realized or fleshed out.
