I have some questions about arranging a song in fingerstyle:
I know these:
- Get the melody.
- Get the chords.
- Combine melody and chords rhythmically.
My questions are:
- The melody is high single notes, but where can I find the melody or single notes for any song? Or should I learn the melody by ear? If a song is only played with strumming, how to get the melody combined with the chords?
- How to arrange bass note to every chord? I know the first bass note to arrange fingerstyle must be the root of the chord, but what about the second note for every chord or third if we use it?
- Is learning how to combine melody and chords together just a matter of experience? How do I learn more about fingerstyle arrangement to get this experience?
