Chord Progressions Part Seven
'The 'Creep' Chord Progression'

A couple lessons ago we learned the most obvious chord progression of all:
The 'Oh Duh' Chord Progression
1. If there are 3 primary chords in a key -- I, IV, and V -- and there are;
2. And since most songs start and end on the I chord -- and they do;
3. Then the obvious conclusion is that there are only two possibilities for the next chord -- the V chord or the IV chord;
4. So if the melody note is part of the V chord, then the chord is probably the V chord. (Duh!) If the melody is not part of the V chord, then the chord is probably the IV chord. (Duh!)

Just to briefly review, here they are again -- the 3 most used chords -- the primary chords -- in each major key:

This time we're going to learn the 'creep' chord progression, using those diminished 7th chords we learned back a few lessons ago. I call it the 'creep' because the chords creep up gradually until you arrive at a stable chord, then the song goes elsewhere."
