In this lesson we're going to try oblique motion harmony. Oblique means that no matter what the melody (or the moving part) does, the oblique line stays stationary. So, essentially for every note the melody plays the oblique part just stays on the G note.

This is a boring part on its own. But together with the melody it makes a very interesting effect because it means the resultant harmony interval is always different and changing. And, of course, it makes for another interesting option in our harmony guitar tool kit!
