Lesson 7: Melody

Creating a memorable melody is the most important task in some forms of electronic music, and unnecessary in others. It all depends on what genre you are focusing on. There are a lot of Deep House songs where the hook of the song is not really a melody, but rather, the strange and interesting sounds. The same applies for Dubstep. Usually the melody hook of the song is the bass line. For this section, we are going to be focusing on traditional melodies, with the assumption that there is a bass line, and eventually there will be chords (you will learn about these in the next lesson).
