Learning Chord Progressions In A Minor Key

HOW TO GO ABOUT LEARNING CHORD PROGRESSIONS IN A HOST OF MINOR KEYS

Learning chord progressions in a minor key is one thing, but in this lesson you will learn how to take things further. You will be learning how to play right across the neck, out of time (rubato). You will be outlining the harmony and creating beautiful chord progressions. To do this, you will be making use of a piece of theory you learned in an earlier lesson. We talked about how we can use chord III to substitute for chord I. This creates interest and longevity for the progression. We will be doing exactly the same things in this lesson. We will replace chord I with chord III, however, we are doing this within a minor key scenario.

Hopefully you will work hard at this lesson. The reason that you should is that it will help you understand how you can start applying these concepts to chord melody playing. If you are new to chord melody work, then you should listen to some of the great jazz guitarists past and present. It takes a lot of work to be able to play chord melody arrangements. Unlike the piano for example where you can, almost from the start create hand independence, the guitar takes a lot longer re developing this skill.
