Thread Name: Tunes rule OK? Or chords?
Subject: RE: Tunes rule OK? Or chords?
...depends on if the accompaniment to a vocalist is that which is being sought: chords. If it's a solo, or an instrumental piece, then melody. (For example ...was always intrigued by the melody in Bouree by Jethro Tull. Learned the melody first, then figured out the accompanying chords. Contrast that to the chords to Love Like Rain by Jonell Mosser. Chords came first.)
