Understanding And Writing Major Key Chord Progressions

This lesson doesn’t have a video to accompany it, we are talking pure bookwork here. Don’t worry, I tried to keep the writing light and simple so you can quickly understand how to determine all of the basic chords that you can use in a particular key as well as understand how to create a chord progression using those chords.

For this lesson we will stick with only major keys because minor keys require a little more work. But if you go through this method now, understanding the minor keys should be pretty easy for you.

The tutorial starts by just going through the basics of how chords are created and how we apply them to certain keys. Then we take a look at some actual chord progressions.

Part two of this tutorial will be a video lesson showing how to apply this chord progression knowledge to the guitar.

So don’t forget to download the tutorial and read through it a few times until you feel you can confidently write chord progressions and I will see you in Part Two with some actual guitar playing!!

    Hey Carl, This lesson is great, do you plan on putting more theory lessons up or is this all theory is?

  2. Carl Brown Carl Brown says:

    Hey thanks for watching,. There is a lot more to theory, in fact it could take up an entire lifetime and you would still find plenty of things you can learn. I will be putting a lot more theory videos and PDF tutorials up. I am also looking for any suggestions that readers would have on what type of theory lessons they would like to see. If you click on the theory category you should see all the theory lessons I have made for the site so far. But rest assured there are plenty more coming! :) See you soon!! Carl..
