    Description

    When you know how chord progressions work, it's much easier to learn new songs. And when you understand a song's chord structure, you're not just memorizing letter names; in fact, you can play the tune in any key. Learning how songs are put together also develops your musical ear and enhances your appreciation of music in general.

    In this lesson, Fred draws from several musical genres (rock, blues, jazz, pop and country) to illustrate many standard types of chord movement and song structures. You'll learn about chord families, the twelve bar blues, circle-of-fifths changes, diatonic chord movement and more. Along the way you'll learn how to play and comprehend the progressions of many classic tunes, including Stand By Me, I Got Rhythm, Your Cheatin' Heart, St. Louis Blues, Like A Rolling Stone, All Of Me, Alice's Restaurant, Five Foot Two, Please Don't Talk About Me When I'm Gone and more.

    Fred's easy-going instructional style makes learning easy, and many of the musical ideas presented here are written out in tab and music or with diagrams. You're guaranteed to finally understand the circle of fifths, which motivates countless songs!
