Chord Progressions For Play Along and Jam Tracks

It would be very handy if the progression for each track were on the web-site. Any chance they can be made available.
Cheers

Transcribing it would be a good idea...

The modal ones only have one chord each, and I just fiddle about with modal extensions...

The Blues are Blues...

That leave the Country and the Pop ones... will see if I have charts anywhere, or I will have to transcribe them myself...

or maybe someone else can and leave it here...

anyone...

;)

Thank you chaps. I,m find transcribing the solo's time consuming and I am climbing a mountain here with jazz chords, blues, tears in the rain, other songs and re-stringing my guitar whilst working, keeping the wife, children and dog happy etc etc so doing the same with the progressions is just more time I have'nt got. One chord and modal extensions. Umm. Your going to do a modes DVD ? HA ha ha.
Thanks for Zitghost. What to do ? Where from here ?

@ Tongariro

Sorry but I can't explain modal extensions in a post like this... too complex...

Each modal sequences uses one chord (lets say D min for D Dorian) and extensions would be Dmin6, Dmin7, Dmin11, Dmin13 etc...

See the recent Jazz lessons for more info on this "Jazz Chord Concept".

I wanted the chord chart too. I would like to know which scale degrees sound good over certain chords in the key. Since it's not available I am figuring it out myself. Here is Country Pop Rock in D Major:

It starts off with a I V IV (D A G) progression, and you do some up and down with the second finger on the first string/second fret of the open D chord.

Then it goes to vi ii (Bm Em).

Then there is a little run up that goes iii IV V (F#m G A) to the next part.

And the next part is IV V I (G A D).

It does that for awhile and then goes back to the beginning.

It's all in the key of D so the only choices are I (D) ii (Em) iii (F#m) IV (G) V (A) vi (Bm) and viidim (C#dim). And that will be the same for G Major Pop, only in the key of G of course. I will figure it out next. It does sound a little more complicated. It sounds like there is a G major seventh chord in there for one thing.

I hope this helps someone. Let me know if I'm off on anything.

I kept a copy of this from the time zapped posted it -


Analysis of Justin Sandercoe's Really Useful Acoustic Pop in G Major
by Zapped, 2008-07-21


Song structure:
Section A:  G  / / /  Gmaj7    / / /  C    / / /  D    / / /
Section B:  Em / / /  Bm       / / /  D    / / /  Am   / / /
Section C:  C  / / /  C/B      / / /  C6/A / / /  C/G  / / /
            C  / / /  Cadd2/D  / / /  C/E  / / /  C/G  / / /

Time   Section
-----  ------------------------
00:00  two-beat drum intro
00:02  A intro
00:25  A w/repeats
01:06  B w/repeats
01:51  A w/repeats
02:33  B w/repeats
03:17  C w/repeats
03:58  B w/repeats
04:43  B as outro


Now this was a quick listen & strum-along with notes scribbled along the way, so forgive any typos but feel free to correct them. I could easily be off in the C section but I think it's pretty close.

For soloing, I'd use this recipe:
* Section A = a straight G Ionian solo (or G Maj Pentatonic if you want to limit it to that)
* Section B = E Aeolian solo (or E Min Pentatonic, which is same as G Maj Pent)
* Section C = I'd stick with the C Maj Pentatonic here, and of course emphasize C, D, E, G since it's mostly Cadd2 material
with a walking bassline underneath.

Good stuff

But you should be sticking to C Lydian (G Maj) for the C section. Train that new sound in your ears ;) imho.

@ royp

Thanks. I recently found this track and have been improvising over it with a Gm Pentatonic modifying some of the blues licks in Am with all 5 positions (shifting to the Gm position). Certain notes didn't seem to fit, so I was trying to figure out the chord progression and work the minor Pentatonic position 1 from Gm to Cm to Dm.

Now I can work on the GM scale, Pentatonic positions (other than Am), and shifting to match positions with chords.

I've got some work to do....  :o

Already I feel my phrasing has improved (or I'm not cut out for blues).  ;D

Clip...

Section C:  C  / / /  C/B          / / /  C6/A / / /  C/G  / / /
                 C  / / /  Cadd2/D  / / /   C/E  / / /  C/G  / / /

Clip....

For what its worth I hear section C as:

| Cadd9    | G/B      | A7sus    | G5      | x 2
| Cadd9    | G5/D    | Em7       | G5     | x 2

Chord Grips...
X 3 2 0 3 3 - Cadd9
X 2 0 0 3 3 - G/B
X 0 2 0 3 3 - A7sus
3 X 0 0 3 3 - G5
X X 0 0 3 3 - G5/D
X X 2 0 3 3 - Em7

I winged it on naming the chords... I think hear the high strings the same through-out...
