So, I play piano and don't know anything about CBA.

When I want to play harmony, or as we say here, "chording," I play the melody with (mostly) my middle, ring and little fingers, and chording (mostly) with my first, second and middle fingers.

Is it the same on CBA?

For me I'd agree..... Normally play melody with pinkie side of hand and see what else may fit sweetly with the thumb side of things..... Rarely use 5 fingers... 4 about my limit and pinkie often first to be fired....
Possibly result of bad habits derived from self teaching....

I think there is no other way to do it (with just the right hand), so yeah it's pretty much the same on CBA. And on 5 row CBA you have more ways to hit the notes, making fingering for melody and chords easier. (Sadly, I'm not good enough to really do this at any acceptable level.)
