'Melody' is one of the essential building blocks of music.

Simply put, a melody is a sequence of single notes, played one after the other.

If you think about a song with lyrics that you might sing, 'the melody' is also known as the 'tune'. It is the tune you sing as you go through the song.

But melody is not just limited to your voice. Most musical instruments can play melodies, by playing one note after another, in a continuous stream.

Let's learn how to play melodies on the guitar!
