Melody refers to notes being sounded in succession (as opposed to all at once, which is harmony)
A chord progression is nothing more than a sequence of chords, usually centered around a key.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

An easy way to think of it is that chords underline a melody, and acdentuate its notes.

The melody is simply the lead tune of the song.

Check out some George Harrison (Beatles era). He used to play the chords AND the melody.

So you'd get something like this:

-2------2--
-3-2-3-3--
-4------4--
-4------4--
-2------2--
------------

Where he plays the basic chords PLUS all the additional notes that make up the melody.

That's not a very good example of his work, but meh...

hi
more explanation about melody is much appreciated


What "more explanation"? Melody is notes sounded in succession as opposed to all at once. It's that simple.
