There Is A Time - Melody

  • Melody
  • Key   Dm
  • Tempo   90 bpm
  • Tuning   GDAE

Learn the basic melody to there is a time. This follows the rhythm and pitch of the melody as you would sing it. Listening to the song enough to know the words and hum the melody will help you play more musically because you'll know how the melody is supposed to sound when trying to play it. Humming along with the Tunefox player will help you as well.

After getting the hang of the basic melody try out a few of those licks. There's enough licks here to create completely new arrangements! Try to see what melody notes are included in each lick. Think about how the melody might be displaced rhythmically or how a new technique is used to include that original melody. It's kind of like reverse engineering, and it will hopefully help you understand how to create similar variations from a basic melody
