Common Chord Progressions Part 4 LESSON DESCRIPTION:

Over the last three weeks I've been hyping up how beneficial it is to study common chord progressions.

My last few lessons covered twenty common progressions!

In today's lesson I cover how to take any of those chord progressions and manipulate them to find even more popular chord combinations.

This is powerful. With chord progression variations the options are seemingly ENDLESS.

Now we can get creative with every-day chord progressions and make them our own, just like many of our favorite artists do.
