So what exactly is musical harmony? Well, if you were to look at a dictionaries definition of harmony you would probably find something like this:
- The simultaneous sounding of two or more tones, esp. when satisfying to the ear
- Structure in terms of the arrangement, modulation, etc. of chords

Harmony is what brings a song to life. Think of a plain melody and lyric as a black and white sketch, add harmony and you have yourself a full-color painting. So master writing great harmonies and you're one third of the way to writing great songs.
