LOOKING UP CHORD SHAPES

CHALLENGE

Earn your Core Chords Level 5 patch by demonstrating any two of the following chord sequences in each of the 5 new keys (highlighted in bold): Db, Ab, Eb, Bb, F, C, G, D, A, E, B & F#.

  • I–vi–IV–V7 (The 50’s Progression)
  • I–V–vi–IV (The Pop-Punk Progression)
  • I–V–vi–iii–IV–I–IV–V7 (Pachelbel Progression)
  • I–vi–ii–V or I–vi–ii7–V7 (The Jazz Progression or subsititute for The 50s Progression)

THE EXTRA MILE

You’ve now worked with each of the 12 major chord families. Although demonstrating the use of these chords in the context of a song is not required to earn the patch, you may wish to consider learning one song in an unusual key, just for bragging rights, to add to your Set Lists.
