Please help. I appear to need to learn "The Rules of Harmony"
Now, I’m just a poor, country, melody player. I live out in the sticks, and don’t get out much.
I haven’t got many CDs, as my Dad wouldn’t buy me any, and he’s dead now.
I’m told there are some sort of rules that govern what guitar-pickers do who play in things called ‘Floot’ or ‘Lunacy’ or something.
Can anyone give me a few clues as to what these rules might be, as it’s clearly beyond me? Me with my poor, country background ‘n’ all.
I’d ideally like to be able to collect these rules, and stick them up on the wall in some sort of chart.
I can’t help feeling that it would improve my melody playing considerably, if only I could learn what notes would be likely to clash with what those important guitar-pickers want to play, so that I could avoid them in any tunes I happen to be playing.
