The Write Stuff: Chord Progressions to Get You Started

Is there a list of more of these charts like Fig 1. for diffrent types
of chords?
Maybe a good book for this list, where did this info come from.
I would like to learn more and have more charts on it.



Great article. Do you know how to circumcise a whale? Use foreskin divers. Your use of foreskin in the article reminded me of this old joke.

As you stated:
"I-V-IV and I-IV-V progression are probably the most basic in pop music, both are used so often that even listeners who don’t know a IV chord from a foreskin recognize them intuitively."

Yes I read the whole article.

Great work!



Back In Black is in E and is E -D - A.
