Playing Chords and Melody Simultaneously Part II

We now know our G major chord in a number of spots on the fingerboard.Let’s use this knowledge to play some melodies. I have decided that the old hymn “I’ll Fly Away” is a good melody to demonstrate how to use chords to play a melody.B         G        D      G        B            B     B     C   B
Some Glad Morning When this Life is Over.-9———-0———-9—9—9–10–9—
-8—–8— 0—-8—–8—8—8——8—-

That’s the first part of “I’ll Fly Away” played entirely using G major Chords. The only one we don’t play as a chord is the C. However, you could simply play the chord proceeding that note and add a C note instead of a B.
