Chord progression is still very cryptic for me... I havent looked much into it,
but I'll have to because I love to improvise, and scales are understood...

So the remaining thing for me is how to play chords etc.

I didnt understand much of it as you see in my post above, but know I finally got it...
All these vii, iii and I stuff are numbers....

It's refering to 1,2,3,4,5,6,7 in the scale you are playin in, so I made a little piece with the chord progression they use on that page.
But if I'm right that chord progression is kinda the safe way? Because you can bend the rules ^_^

Chord Progressions are really fun, I just don't like it when I hear the most common Chord Progression in songs. Making your own is much better than using common ones.

i think the best thing is to experiment and go where u feel necessary. Remember there are many rules to follow but if you find something that sounds incredible but break every rule in music lol. The rules are there as a starting point and as a little block for beginners to get the feel of composing and creating with some walls around them so they don't confuse themselves

It's roman numerals I = 1, II = 2, III = 3, IV = 4, V = 5, VI = 6 VII = 7

big letters are major, small letters minor

Post by Admin Andrew Mon Apr 06, 2009 6:16 am

Sorry! I don't want you guys to be misinformed. In analisis it's extreamly importaint that we don't get minor and major chords mixed up so we have lower case symbols for minors and upper case for major's here's what it should look like Smile keep in mind this is very importaint. (otherwise I wouldn't bring it up)

C-Major

I = C
ii =d
iii=e
IV=F
V =G
vi=a
vii o=B (the o stands for diminished usually it's higher up and smaller)

C-Major Chords

I = C E G
ii =D F A
iii=E G B
IV=F A C
V =G B D
vi=A C E
vii o=B D F (usually written like this) vii o6 =D F B

hopefully that makes sense... lol... if it didn't i'm sorry

How to create a chord progression in Minor and Major Empty What determines this

Post by quick Tue Apr 07, 2009 2:35 am

it depends what scale you are playing in. for example if its c major scale:

c d e f g a b c

as you can see it's impossible to make the first chord a minor, it has to be C E G

hm... sure about that??
i might be wrong now, but Im just shooting it out! Razz

the first chord in a C major could be a minor -> C Eb G = i
isnt this possible you mean?

Instead of a C I = (C E G) you got a C i = (C Eb G)

Post by Admin Andrew Wed Apr 08, 2009 1:47 am

mmm, no that wouldn't work Thomas, then you're not in C major anymore, you're borrowing the i chord from C minor now. In later music they do borrow from the minor on the 3rd 6th and 7th notes on occasion. but you would say it's from C minor not major. It has to be from the key Smile so only C D E F G A B C exist in C major. Think of C minor as another dimension completely. Hopefully that makes sense...XD
