The 3 Parts of a Song

Watch the newest episodes of Webcam Sessions!

On this Ukulele Webcam Sessions, Matt breaks down the 3 parts of a song. He explains how Melody, Harmony, and Rhythm all play an important roll in a song's feel and identity. Matt uses "Heart of Gold" by Neil Young to demonstrate how all 3 components are vital in capturing the essence of a song. He also uses "Island in the Sun" by Weezer to illustrate the importance of chord voicings. Matt translates what the 3 parts of a song will mean for you when playing the ukulele, and he offers a few tips on how to better capture the big 3.

Each song lesson teaches you the 3 components that Matt covered, and they usually include picking solos and all the other little details that make a song easily recognizable.
