Create A Melody In A Song.
Using 3rd and 5th notes of the chords give you a great melody line to play solos. In this example we have taken chords and then worked out the 3rds and 5ths of that chord and used the notes to create a melody line. Look at the 3rd and 5th notes from that chord scale. The Em scale is E, F#, G, A, B, C, D – The 3rd note being a G and the 5th being a B. Work out the 3rds and 5ths in the Bm, G and D chords? With your teacher playing the chord progression, play the Em using the 3rd note (G), the Bm using the 5th (F#), G using the 3rd (B) and the D play the 5th (A). We suggest you do this all on the B string.
