Thread Name: Tunes rule OK? Or chords?
Subject: RE: Tunes rule OK? Or chords?
Yes, Don but I forgot that ballads and songs are different from Dance Tunes, just as Jon says. And I guess Malcolm is right---if the rythym isn't right all the "tune" in the world won't make it sound right.

Some "dance tunes" do have words---but it is the slow aires and ballads that the words help me to remember the melody. Chords just don't have any meaning at all for me.
