Join Jared Meeker for an in-depth discussion in this video Playing from chord sheets, part 4, part of Bass: Teach Yourself.
- All right, let's check out…the I-vi-IV-V progression.…This will really help you out when playing…and learning more chord sheets.…One of the most common progressions…in all of music is I-vi-IV-V.…And often the order of those chords can change…but still a lot of blues, a lot of pop music,…most hits that you hear on the radio…really do have those four chords in it.…So let's investigate more of what that means.…
When you're playing in a certain key,…the I-vi-IV-V chords will just be formed off of…each one of those notes.…So if you take the key of E, for instance, the notes are…E, F sharp, G sharp, (notes sound)…A, B, C sharp, (notes sound)…D sharp, and then E. (notes sound)…The one chord would be E-- (note sounds)…And that chord, if you played…the root third fifth off of it, it is major.…The six chord-- (note sounds)…Would be C sharp minor.…
The four chord--…(note sounds)…Is A major, and the five chord would be B.…(note sounds)…B major.…So the one, the four, and the five are always major…and the six is minor.…So all you have to do is basically find those chord tones,…
