Lesson notes

If you know some basic seventh chords you’ll be able to get this concept down in no time. This common chord progression is a staple of western music and is found in nearly every style. It is also the foundation of jazz and much more complicated theory. Using the key of C and the diatonic chords within it, the progression and licks that correspond can easily be transposed. Once understood on a basic level, you’ll have the tools necessary to unlock a lot more doors both musically and technically. • Explanation of what this progression is comprised of and how best to finger the chords. • Root position chords with a corresponding four-bar lick that can be transposed. • A rhythmic and melodic chordal approach to playing through a ii-V-I in the key of C.
