The PERFECT Way to Match Chords to Melody...

If you struggle with finding the correct chords to fit with a melody then you are definitely going to want to watch this video. You may even think that finding the right chords that fit well with a melody is something that you can't do. It is something that anyone can do, if you know how...

Once you learn how to use keys, tonality, and chord harmony, you'll discover that finding the best chords for melodies is not very difficult at all.

While it may be true that a lack of information is undermining your ability to discover the correct chord for a measure of music, it doesn't need to stay that way.

This lesson will give you all the tools to search out the best chord for any melody that you want to harmonize.


In this post I’m going to have an incredibly helpful lesson for you and really for lot’s and lot’s of people because one of the biggest areas of confusion for guitar players is NOT being able to go and match up chord changes to melody lines.

All too often, I’ll find that guitar students will struggle with this. And, it doesn’t need to be that way. There are only 3 things that you need to understand in order to do this work.

  1. The first has to do with knowing the notes found within your keys.
  2. The second has to do with knowing the chords that are found within keys. 
  3. And, the last thing is be able to become aware of the strongest notes that are played in each measure of music. 
All you’ll need to do after watching and learning from this video, is to use a simple formula (that I provide here) to determine the chord that you’ll play related to a melody line over any measure of any musical piece.


I'd like to get things started with me going ahead and performing the melody that I’ve composed for this lesson…

The melody:

Next, I’d like to conduct an in-depth analysis of how to select chords for a melody. What we need to understand is how each interval relationship functions between the chord and the melodies tones.

Plus, you will need to understand why each particular chord that’s performed in each measure would be selected over any other chord.

Once you learn how to select chords and learn why they operate the way they do, you’ll be able to choose the chord types to play over any melody line.

Now, if you don’t know your keys, and you don’t understand your chords, I’m gonna make you an offer you can’t refuse.

With any donation over $5 or any t-shirt purchase from either my Tee-Spring or Zazzle store, I will send you a free copy of not one, but TWO of my digital lesson handouts.

One covers, “Harmonized Arpeggio Drills” (it’ll train you on developing your diatonic arpeggios).

The other digital handout covers my "Barre Chord Mastery," breakdown, (which also includes a page that is showing the key signatures along with a chord progression on applying barre chords).

Just send me the confirmation number of your donation or t-shirt purchase and you'll receive your handouts by email.


Now let’s get into doing the analysis…

The analysis:

If you’re at the point right now where you can’t understand how to match up chords to a melody it just means that you’re weak at one of the three areas of musical skill - required to do this.

If you’re having confusion hearing what the best chord is, it just means that you are unsure of how to tie together the information about how keys operate. And, that means knowing the keys scale tones along with what chords fit into each key.

Once you know this stuff, you’ll be able to use the strongest tone that’s located within each measure and you’ll be able to relate that tone to the best sounding chord from the key.
