Ok ok, so you know how basic chords work, you know the 3 common chord progressions every beginner should know, and you probably even know the 10 powerful chord progressions that every songwriter should know. But do those progressions move you? Do they really speak to who you are and what you want to write? Well, that’s what this lesson is all about!
These chord progressions will take you out of the regular routine and on a journey. Whether that’s the land of modern songs, the land of 80’s rock, or anywhere in between. We will give you the tools to be creative, to have fun, and, most of all, to take your audience (even if it’s just your dog) on a journey with you. I promise these chord progressions will move you!
