Harmonizing melodies can be very tricky. What chords do we pick for each melody note and when do we place them. 

In this harmonization beginner’s podcast, I go over how to use diatonic chords as well as some substitutes to spice up a simple melody like twinkle twinkle.

  1. First I want to say I love your podcasts and they really help me a lot, you give out a lot of very useful information!
    As a jazz pianist I focus most of my practice time on jazz skills like voicings, improvisation and stuff like that but I don’t really know a lot about playing different styles of music. I’m talking about rock, pop and other styles of music that are generally easier to play.
    I know that there are a lot of stuff on pop and rock piano on the internet but most of it is pretty slow and teaches stuff I already know like triads and inversions.
    Could you make a Jazz guy’s guide to rock/pop piano playing? it would really help me a lot since I am often asked to play that kind of music and I ussually feel a bit out of place when playing it.
