More Essential Chord Progressions & The Chord Progression Formulas

This is a sequel to the bestselling "Essential Chord Progressions" and "Advanced Chord Progressions" series. In that Apps, we defined some basic chord terminology, and described some of the fundamental problems songwriters encounter with regard to the creation of chord progressions.

In this App, we want to elaborate on many aspects of good chord progressions, including a focus on several categories:

1. More minor chord changes: In "Essential Chord Progressions" I included a short chapter that focused on chord progressions from minor keys. We want to offer more of them, with even more creative ways of centering on minor keys.
2. Progressions that begin and end on different key centres: It"s sometimes refreshing to hear a progression that starts in a minor key, then modulates (changes key centre) to focus on a different note (often a major key). These progressions can be used to change key, or to circle right back to your original key choice.
3. A category of progressions we call "mirror progressions": A mirror progression is one in which the second part of the progression mirrors the first part in chord function, with the actual chords often being somewhat different. A mirror progression is useful for taking a melody, then repeating that melody note-for-note while harmonizing it with completely different chords. Like category 2 above, it"s a refreshing way to present a melody.
4. In addition to the above, a whole array of progressions that we didn"t cover in the first App, "Essential Chord Progressions":

* Suspensions
* Assorted dominant chord formulas
* Inverted pedal points
* Circle of fifths progressions
* Chord planing

General chord progression advice: Without a doubt, the vast majority of correspondence we receive from songwriters concerns how to deal with chords. So I"ve inserted several small articles throughout this App that answers some of the more common questions we´ve received:

* What Makes a Good Chord Progression?
* Which Should Come First "œ Chords or Melody?
* How Innovative Should Chord Progressions Be?
* The One-Chord Song... and Make-Up?!

Chord Progression Formulas

For many songwriters, chord progressions are a mysterious wandering of one chord to another, without knowing what could or should happen next. We offer two chord progression Apps and a manual that contains many pages of suggested progressions. These are progressions you can use as is, or modify to suit your needs. But the problem is that many musicians simply don"t know how to modify a progression. By the time they"re done, the progression just doesn"t make sense, and it doesn"t work.
