Melody Writing 4 – The Nguyen Composes

This time I mess around with (possibly excessive) passing tones and neighbor tones. The alteration of the normal and raised scale degree 7 in the minor scale introduces chromatic tones early on in the melody. This prepares the ear for the chromatic scale near the end.

Have a listen!
