Thread Name: harmony vs. melody
Subject: RE: harmony vs. melody
I've given some thought to the original question, "What is the difference between melody and harmony?" and this is one answer: A melody is easy to learn and remember. Harmony has to be drilled.

As to why certain sets of notes are easy to remember, and some aren't, there you have me. I think the answer is embedded in our neurons, and nobody knows the answer yet.
