Hi Although I write mainly for the piano, sometimes I like to do other little things. This is a short piece harmonized in two different ways: Version 01: with chord notes (thirds, sevenths, etc...) Version 02: with fourths and sevenths (and doubling the lead voice)
Reading about harmonizing a melody, I have come across the idea that we don't need to change the chords a lot. One author has even said that a chord may not change for several bars. Another has advocated changing the chords during strong beats. I would like to know how we can stay in the same chord if the notes in the melody are always changing and a chord gives us access to only 3-4 of those notes most of the time? Are we supposed to limit ourselves to these 3-4 notes in the composition of additional parts that accompany the melody? And what about notes in the melody that are out of these 3-4 notes? Are they acceptable?
