Understanding & Recognizing Some Of The Most Common Chord Progressions Like:
I-V-I I-IV-I II-V-I I-VI-II-V-I
Hello! Dave here. I continue to receive numerous emails letting me know that you
want to know more about chord progressions. Thank you for that! Okay, I've put something
together here that is sure to take some of the mystery out of it all. My goal is to have you confident
with some of the most common progressions known to man as well as to have you looking at those
songs from a much more professional angle so you can play more creatively at those keys!
At the same time, you'll have a foundational understanding of how the diatonic circle
relates to chord progressions. So a "kickstart" and a "curiosity-stimulator" is
what you might say you are about to take advantage of...
Q. Is it possible to predict the next chord in a song without knowing
what it is and without ever having heard or played the song before?
A. You bet it is! Besides, even if you were not 100% accurate, imagine being able to predict
what chord is coming next in just about any song you play about 85%! Get a handle on
chord progressions and you'll be on your way to being able to do this.
Q. I want to learn how to play music by ear. Can this help?
A. Yes! Understanding your chord progressions is most conducive to playing music by ear.
The recognition of chord patterns (progressions) is all a part of the process and,
once you start becoming a little more confident with the basic ones, you'll
notice a difference in how you approach those favorite songs of yours.
Imagine feeling the freedom to be so confident with chord changes,
you actually get to focus on putting your own personal feeling and style
into the song by playing with fills, improvisation, and more...
Q. Is it difficult to get a grasp on all of this?
A. Not when you have it explained in a fashion that "clicks" with you.
Basically, you are being given the "key" here and you'll be having the fun
opening up new doors of understanding when it comes to seeing and
hearing those favorite songs, improvising, decorating those melodies, and more.
Q. What do I need to know to take advantage of this?
A. Knowledge and some experience playing either triads or 7th chords. Our demonstration
is presented within the context of 7th chords but the same basic concepts apply when playing triads.
If you are seeking to learn from a more theoretical point of view, then you will likely
gain benefit from this one if chord progressions are new to you.
What you have here is an explanation and demonstration of diatontic circle of fifth basics presented
in a context that develops into a bit of an exploration into a few possibilities as to how this material
can be applied in a fun and skill-developing way. The tendency is to place a "beginner-intermediate" label
if one is called for, since it has sprinkles of both. This is one that just might serve as the "missing link" for those
new at learning chord progressions or who would like to take on a little more organized perspective
on the matter. This presentation will serve as a launching pad for your feeling confident when it comes to
understanding chord progressions and how the diatonic circle of fifths can be an exciting,
rewarding addition to your practice routine that will bring out the musical genius in you!
