    I know this question isn't really about the music, but I really want to know what brand of guitar that is you're playing. I was assuming it was from the Fender custom shop until I got a brief look at the logo. No idea now.

    And by the way, I've tried to learn chord melody before not too long ago and didn't understand what the teacher was trying to convey. You're extremely easy to follow. Thank you for that.

  5. sorry if i've missed my english not perfect;
    did you give any advice to choosing the right chord on melody.
    for example first two notes of your melody is D# and E. and maybe we can count tens of chords which include D# or F. for example for D#. Cdim, C#9, C#m9, Emaj and derives… all of these are including D# note, but somehow some of these look like erroneus while playing. how we will choose the right chords to build a nice harmony. do you have any lesson about it?
    i hope i can explain

  6. excuse me if someone writes G- as a chord what does that mean please?
    is it a real chord?

  7. very nice great

  8. great – really concise – thanks!

  9. Thank you so much. Very helpful
