CHORD PROGRESSIONS GUITAR PLAYERS USE REGULARLY
There are many chord progressions guitar players like to learn and here is another really important one. First up though, you may be wondering why you need to know all these chord progressions? Do songs really rely on these chord sequences so often? The answer is yes they do. If you check out some of your favourite songs and if you understand how to analyse the chords you discover this for yourself. It really is that important.
In previous lessons we have looked at the I – VI – II – V – I progression and in this lesson we tackle the I – VI – IV – V – I progression. Now, there is not that much difference between them. The II chord has been replaced by the IV chord. This progression is used in jazz, however, it’s much more common in rock and pop songs. Also, remember that chord IV and chord II are related. Chord II is the relative minor of chord IV within a major diatonic key system. For example, if the key was in G major then chord II would be Am and chord IV would be C major. C major and Am are relative major and minors.
THEORY SHOT IN THE ARM…ONLY FOR THE FEARLESS!
This lesson also sees the return of synonyms…big time! The theory in this lesson may prove very difficult for some, but stick in there. If you do find yourself struggling, you can always send a question to the teacher, Ged Brockie. If you learn the material here you will be able to use chords in three different ways, not just one. Real power!
