Chord Progressions

This lesson will cover the 50’s progression, the Let It Be progression, jazz progressions, blues progressions, and more This lesson is loaded, so let’s get started! The 50’s Progression I like to start with the 50’s progression because it is recognizable, playable in open position, and it only requires 4 chords. I’m going to give you a few examples using the major and minor CAGED chords and F chord thrown in. I’m going to give you three versions.

I-vi-IV-V This is the classic 50’s progression in the Key of C. I-vi-iv-V The Sleep Walk by Santo & Johnny variant switches the IV from a major to a minor chord, which is symbolized by the lower-case numerals. I-vi-ii-V This is a variant of the 50’s progression that I prefer. Pachelbel’s Canon Usually this is played in D, but it translates to guitar more easily in the key of G. Let it Be Progression This is an extremely popular progression.
