How To Harmonize A Melody - Harmonizing Melodies

“I Can’t Find the Right Chords for My Song”

by Tommaso Zillio

A very common problem that you are going to run through sooner or later is to be able to find the right chords for a melody. It may be a melody that you imagined (like a song that you are creating or a melody one of your friends is humming (and he wants you to accompany with the guitar) or it may be the melody of a song you know (and that you are trying to transcribe by ear).

In music theory we call this kind of problem “harmonization of a given melody”. The good news is that the solution to this problem is, after all is said and done, quite simple: everybody can understand how to properly harmonize a melody. The bad news is that the explanation to the harmonization procedure is usually buried in music theory books among lots of other topics, and it is not easy to retrieve the useful information for people who are not very familiar with how music theory works. But fear not.
