Can't Help Falling in Love
This week on Ukulele Webcam Sessions, Matt talks about the importance of a distinguished melody line. He explains how melody lines can get lost with the filler notes of chord melody focused songs. Matt uses "Can't Help Falling in Love" to demonstrate how increasing the volume and pronunciation of certain notes can instantly highlight the all important melody.
In our Deconstructing Chord Melodies workshop, Aldrine also talked about the importance of letting the melody shine. UU+ Members, you can check out the workshop for free HERE! And years ago the master himself, Jake Shimabukuro appeared on one of our Uke Minutes to talk about the Pluck Strum Technique. He also mentioned the advantages of being able to highlight specific notes to bring out a melody.
