Intro to Major Scale Harmony

This tutorial series is about creating and playing two part harmony guitar lines in rock style music. This is often one guitar part playing a melody, lead or solo part that is harmonized by a second guitar. Major scale harmony will be used to explore the basic types of contrapuntal motion: similar, oblique and contrary.

We'll discuss the basic ways to create melodies and harmonize them. Then we'll create several melodies and harmonize them in different ways, using different intervals, types of motion and timbres. There will be lots of backing tracks so you can get experience playing along with the various parts and doing it yourself!
