I know the format. I have trouble in the transition from the 1 to the 4515 in a melodic way/sound. Easy if i have the sheet music. Doing it from memory is almost impossible since I’m mostly tone deaf. We’ll work on it
if you can look at the “circle of 4ths” chart, and visually memorise what the chart looks like.
Then you can recall the I-IV-V chords starting on any chord on the chart.
Ex if your I chord is a Bb7 chord, then go anti-clockwise and you will visually recall the IV chord which is a Eb7 chord, and from Bb7 go clockwise and you will recall the V chord which is a F7 chord.
Similarly if you are into Jazz where you play the II-V-I chords.
ex if your II chord is a G chord, then go anti-clockwise and you will visually recall the V chord which is a C chord, and if you go anti-clockwise again, you will visually recall the I chord which is a F chord.
so if you visually remember where all the letters are on the “Circle of 4ths”, then you can quite easily recall the I-IV-V or the II-V-I chords starting on any chord
Thanks JB. Something to work on.I can see the 125 or 241 or 251 is good for improvising. How can any of those 251 etc progressions help me play “Wonderful World” by Sam Cooke or “Sweet Caroline” by Neil D1amond?
