Playing chord melodies is one of the aspects of playing the guitar that I think is the most neglected part for the majority of guitarists. In fact it's something that really doesn't even pass through the minds of many until they hear someone do it. It is of course something that is difficult to do, and takes a lot of study and organization to accomplish. But once it's done and you understand how to go about doing it, then it becomes a mini addiction. I'll be going through this in the series of lessons that I give and it's something that I not only enjoy, but want to share also. It really is a matter of a system of thought, and it truly in my opinion opens up the instrument.
