  • In today's lesson we'll study a very melodic piece. It's very important to not get carried away with technique and forget that music is about conveying a message. Melody is the main focus here.

    The keys of the track are E Major and D Major (or G Lydian). There is a small modulation. The chords are E-Asus9-E-G-F#-minor and E. The modulation in D happens on the G and F# minor chords.

    I tried to create a lead that would flow easily to the listener's ear. When trying to build something melodic, a good idea is to sing a melody on top of the chord progression you're working on and reproduce it on the instrument. That's usually how you can come up with new ideas.

    Once you studied this, you should create your own lead and see what you come up with.

    Hope you enjoy!
