  1. so i can waste my time exploring raffined harmonies, music production or mix engeneering but the bottom line of music is melody (i think). i've quit making music years ago because my talent doesn't get me too far melody wise. i can't quit :) so how does melody work? what is a melody? (wiki doesn't satisfy me). i tried studying dozens of good melodies, but reaching to too few conclusions. many of these hit songs have very simple harmony, and many have 1 pitch per chord melodies. (!!!!!) i realise that the rhythm of the melody (not the rhythm of the song) is the soul and it's harmonic content just a bonus, but it's harmonic content has a few strict rules (which are not clear to me). i came back at studying by listening to "blaze of glory" starting theme. ("bon jovi blaze of glory theme.mid" i attached it). what underlying chords does this melody have? i came up with these ("bog chords is this right.mid") it has 2 mesures. to me it sounds like the first bar asks a question (i know, i'm taking music from scratch), and the second bar answers. but, how does it ask a question if it starts from "a" and after reaching to "C" (which is it's relative major, not a dominant feel pitch) comes right back to "a", how does that sound like a question? is it the interval from which it's comming back to "a"? also, each of these 2 parts (2bars) are made from 2 parts (2 beats each). what are those? they sound like a statement (the first 2beats) and a target or the actual question (beats 3 and 4). these parts not only have separate harmonic content, but different rhythm too. the fist part ("the statement") has a dotted 16th, and the second part has normal 16th rhythm. how would u study this piece of melody? it has 5seconds, big deal :)) . but it made hystory. bon jovi blaze of glory theme.mid bog chords is this right.mid
