So, now I've given you two
major key ones and two minor key ones.
Now I'll give you one that's actually
easier to show you how maybe you could
think of some simple melodies yourself and
figure out how to harmonize them.
Remember we did
the Ode to Joy
way back when,
this melody
See once you've learned those harder ones,
doing, figuring out the stuff on the easy
ones, it gets so simpler, so
I'll just play a few little ideas for it.
That's a tune that you could quite
easily figure out your own variations on
if you've spent the time and learned
how to do some of the two part tone
blocking tunes that I showed
you that were more difficult.
