In this tutorial I teach the melody and several harmony options by ear. I tell you all the notes and chords, and demonstrate the melody and each harmony part separately. Though I’m playing a lyre, you can use this arrangement for other instruments, including zither, small harp, piano, or keyboard. You can also use the melody tutorial for any C tuned melody instrument.
