You look at me chords
The Bm chord is one of the very few chords that is both very, very common, and very, very difficult for beginners to play. B minor is one of the first chords that, when you look it up in a chord book, usually the first result that you see is this difficult chord with what's called a barre shape in it. With a big rectangle across it. Like this:. And if you're just starting out, and you see this rectangle, you might not even know what it means.

The Way You Look at Me Chords bcy Christian Bautista @ Ultimate-Guitar
Instead, I thought that chords could be inferred from the melody. For example first I find the melody by ear. So I just keep adding supporting notes to the melody until I have my chord. And I keep doing this to find the other chords. So I was wondering if this is right. Can chords be found from the melody alone when arranging by ear? Edit: Please note that this question assumes that I have heard the song before. I mainly arrange for well known songs that I have in my head.
Pop songs, traditional songs, etc. Mainly as an exercise for myself. I am aware of what these songs are "supposed" to sound like as I'm arranging them. But I'm trying to find the chords from the melody as the melody is what I usually start off with.
Here's an example of the style I'm working towards. I wrote this question with the guitar in mind. Especially due to its complexity with chord-melody throughout the entire fretboard. But I guess this would work for any instrument that can play chords as well as melody.
No, not if by inferred you mean unambiguously deduced. For example, organists have developed the reharmonization of hymn tunes into a fine art. Yes, if by inferred you mean finding chords that more or less fit.
That's because harmonization is possible at all. Some sequences of chords will fit better by various criteria than others, of course. I think a crucial aspect is to not think one note at a time. Look for melodic segments that match common harmonic patterns. Let's say you are in C major. The melody tone is G. As a single note it isn't clear how to harmonize it. It could be a I or V chord. Now imagine the melodic segment is G F E. It's much clearer the harmony could be V V7 I.
Of course it could be harmonized other ways too. But the point is to look for common melodic patterns when thinking about the harmonic implications of a melody. And of course there are melodies that outline chords. Like a melody of C E G. An obvious harmonization is to just harmonize that with a C major chord. Chords cannot be "inferred" from melody alone.
Creative contribution from an arranger is required. As a counterexample, here is a melody that should be clearly completely ambiguous about "its chords", and some silly chords for it.
Here is another counterexample. First there's a two-bar melody and then many different chords for it. Assigning chords to melody notes is a matter of opinion and creative artistic choices, sometimes technical choices.
It is limited by your technique, experience and imagination. Your questions are: What do you want to do with the melody? What can you do with the melody?
Simple answer to the lead question - NO. Not even when the melody happens to be several notes long. There is, obviously, one chord which fits the original melody - that's the one the writer decided fitted best. Your method for finding the chords is one of several - but flawed from a time and experience point of view. You seem to be looking willy-nilly for notes that might fit together. That's making it a process that's time consuming, for no good reason.
That time wasted should could? It'll pay off in the future. Bit like trying to find the notes of a diatonic tune by testing each fret on the guitar - not understanding that nearly half of those won't be included anyway!
Knowing what notes constitute the snippet of melody being harmonised will help. If it's one long note - let's say C - then it stands a good chance that that C note will be part of the chord in that bar. That narrows it down somewhat. Ideas are: Cmaj. The key of the piece will give clues as to which will probably work or not , as will the surrounding bars' harmonies.
Maybe a better way - more intelligent - than randomly trying stuff out? By approaching the chord stucture your way, you learn one song at a time, and cannot use much - if any - of the information gleaned to help any future songs. I play with a couple of guys who still don't realise that if a song's in C, the other two main chords will almost inevitably be F and G, and I'm convinced that when they try to figure out a new song, they'll try all sorts of chords that most likely wouldn't feature in that song.
Unless you feel that what you're doing is really helping you improve rapidly. Back to my first para. Just about any melody can be re-harmonised. It happens a lot with jazz players, and is fun and challenging to do.
There is never just one chord that fits under a melody line. There is probably a 'most appropriate' one, and there's certainly 'spurious' ones, but as long as the melody notes gel with those chords - probably part of a coherent sequence - then the chords are at least legitimate. Case 1. Deduce the original chords in the composer's arrangement, or some other arrangement from the melody.
Case 2. Deduce what chords would work to support the melody or harmonize in using the melody alone. For case 1 the answer is no, there is no way to know from a melody what specific chords and inversions went along with it. The answer for case 2 is absolutely, this is exactly how we are taught to develop the chords for a song.
The classical approach to multi voice harmony uses the fact that the I, IV and V V7 chords cover the entire major scale. Thus the old joke that all you need to know to play rock music is 3 chords actually applies to classical music as well.
The fact is there is a wealth of chords available to use in harmonizing a song but may are related by substitution theory. A simple example is a 6th chord and its relative minor 7th. There are more elaborate subs but basically from a functional point of view all you really "need" are the I, IV, and V. So, starting from the melody alone you can come up with a nice rhythm section to support the flow of the song but that may differ from what the original composer intended.
I don't think you can "infer" them as you're not the original artist , but you could try something like this:. Lookup the scale that your melody is using for composition, then go into the guitar chords section and use those chords. Sadly, All-guitar-chords.
That tool appears to be broken, but you could figure out the key manually from the notes they're using in the melody, and then use music theory to put chords in artistically. If you're doing a cover, it's going to be somewhat different from the original anyway. Find the key that the piece is written in, then use your own creative judgment to approximate chords on important beats.
This could be on the upbeat or the downbeat or both? Keep in mind that some pieces will change keys, so you would have to adapt to this if you're working with such music.
EDIT: One other thing, you will probably want to use the root note whenever you are adding a chord. Try adding them on the I IV and V, although this will vary, stylistically. The simplest way to show that this idea doesn't even begin to work is to look at some actual music. Take a harmonically simple song like the Beatles' "yesterday" for example. In C, the tune starts D C C. The D is on the first beat of the bar, so the first chord has to fit with the D, right?
Wrong - it's C major. Not C major 9 - just plain C major!

When we first begin learning to play the guitar, we have a tendency to limit ourselves to songs that were written and recorded on the guitar. Sometimes songs are written on the piano in a key that is terrible for guitar in the sense that none of the chords are very guitar-friendly. Before John Legend was Mr. His career in the last 15 years has been pretty well-documented and includes work on the documentary The People Speak , a starring role in a live-TV Jesus Christ Superstar , and of course, The Voice.
