In this lesson we're going to try contrary motion harmony. Contrary motion means that the parts are moving in different directions. It is the opposite of similar motion. If one part goes up, then the other part goes down! There are a few times that I move in similar motion to keep things harmonized with the chords. But the overall lines are contrary to each other.

Instead of a melody and harmony we're going to refer to these as the low and high parts. This is because each part really commands attention in its own right. This is an approach widely used in Baroque and Classical styles that some rock bands have used to spice up their harmony guitar parts! It's more of a polyphony approach.
