Hey Toe...The mushrooms and E's are not really the source of my confusion  :o
I was wondering whether it wasn't a question of working back in 5ths, as opposed to progressing forwards till you're back in Kansas.

@DavidP

Thanks. I started figuring out the guitar part this morning.

Mr Larsen please forgive my facetiousness, as on this point I am equally confused and guess its one for Close to cover as he complete the circle.

I used to think it was the Circle of Fifths going clockwise and the Circle of Fourths counter clockwise. So if you start clockwise C to G is a fifth and counter clockwise C to F is a fourth. I get that but never why Hey Joe which is a counter clockwise trip around the clock, where's Bill Hayley when you need him, is referred as an example of the Circle Of Fifths when more accurately is should represent the Circle of Fourths.
But in the same breath I read the Circle of Fifths is the same as the Circle of Fourth and vice versa, at which point head head goes pop !

Ouch. I need to lie down now.

Cheers

Toby

Ergo C G D

@ Lord_Gigabyte

Best is not to see it as a linear sequence of chords but still see the big chord structure where you started from.
The V->I cadence is the strongest cadence there is; it really forces you to resolve to I

Example;
a fictional I-IV-V-I progression:

Code: [Select]
C.C.C.C|F.F.F.F| G.G.G.G|C.C.C.C|

G resolves to C but you can do a "small" resolve to G as well.

See it as a V->I resolve on it's own but this time consider the G as the I in its own little mini-progression.
he Fifth (V) of G is indeed D.

Code: [Select]
|C.C.C.C|F.F.F.F| D.D.G.G|C.C.C.C|

It doesn't really change the structure of the song and you can choose  to play or omit that extra chord as oyu won't harm the progrssion in any way.

t's not necesseraly "moving up in 5ths" so that train of thought wanders a bit from the idea here but a progression of 5ths proofs how STRONG fifths can be!

Ok, got it!

Now i understand AND have something to look into. The lesson about the circle of fifths (have seen the post, but not read it yet) and playing some progressions on the guitar, so i can hear what is happening.

Thank you all for the help!

We all have idols. Play like anyone you care about but try to be yourself while you're doing so

A tiny nudge at clarity ...

The concept behind the '5th of the 5th' is much more to do with pleasing and effective chord substitution to create a progression with internal resolutions as well as the final resolution to the tonic.

LievenDV has given a perfect mini-example where a full bar of a G chord resolving to a tonic C chord is replaced with a bar containing a half bar of D that itself resolves to a half bar of G. The D chord is not in the key of C. It is a chord substitution - borrowing a chord from another key (the key of G in this instance where D is the 5th).
Extend the D and G to become D7 and G7 and this will be heard even more.

The circle of fifths can be useful here in as much as it is a quick reference to know which chord is the 5th of another. But it is not about multiple chord movements around the circle. It is much more to do with chord substitution.

Take a chord that is not in the key of the main progression and put it in the right place for a musical impact. And in this case that chord is the 5th chord taken from the key of the original key's 5th chord, placed in front of the original key's 5th chord.

re: the circle of fifths thread ... it has only just begun. And it will reference 4ths too. With no exploding heads I hope.

I saw this today and the joke fits this post so much, even the chords are the same :D

Got through the first four beginning lessons. (using the book instead of the website). I feel like I've learned all the material pretty well. Up to 75 changes per minute on some chords! Songs still sound pretty bad, having trouble playing along, or even by myself w/o stopping. So I've taken this week off from lessons and am focusing on trying to play easy songs before I move on. Focusing mostly on songs using the "old faithful" strumming pattern and F barre chord. This week it's a slowed down "learning to fly" by Tom Petty.

Started trying to learn some solos for songs I have already learnt to play. Currently trying the solos from highway to hell and I love rock n roll. Nice and short and not too complicated... unlike phantom of the opera by iron maiden I have been working on for a few months. Gradually getting there with it...

Learning about application of counterpoint (prime, inversion, retrograde, retrograde inversion). I knew the basic theory, but I've never tried formally applying it. Pretty cool stuff.
