    he's not playing two melodies at the same time. he's finger picking/arpeggiating a single melody with a rhythmic root note pattern.

    It sounds like he's playing the bass line and the melody at the same time to me.

    that's the rhythmic root note pattern. but a bass line is rhythm, not melody.

    i'm such an amateur finger picker that it's laughable, but i love it. my skill level is about at paul simon/simon and garfunkel right now, but not as clean and easy as paul simon plays, of course.

    it's ok bro. i understood what you were meaning.

    I don't know (as Jews say) "from" music, but it sounds like two people playing at the same time in the first clip.
