Chord Progressions

Here is a typical chord progression:

C Am7 Dm7 G7

It is commonly referred to as the "We want Cantor!" chord progression, because those are the first 4 chords of a famous song by that name.

But you can use that very same piano chord progression not only in "We want Cantor", but also in "Blue Moon", "Heart & Soul", "Unchained Melody", "Ebb Tide", &quo! t;Polka Dots & Moonbeams", "It's The Talk Of The Tow n", and countless other tunes. You can also use the exact same progression in gospel songs such as "He's Everything To Me", "I Am Not Worthy", and many others.

So if you knew that progression -- I mean REALLY knew it -- you could play countless songs, and portions of countless others.

This same piano chord progression also makes an excellent introduction to most ANY song.

And this very same chord progression also makes a great "turnaround" in dead spots in a song, as well as for use between 1st and 2nd verses of a song.

All this from just ONE chord progression!

There are at least a DOZEN piano chord progressions such as this that occur over and o! ver again in song after song, and in my Chord Progressions course you will hear me play each chord and explain each progression in detail. You will hear me make RUNS & FILLS & RIFFS of various kinds out of each progression -- runs & riffs & fillers you can use, no matter whether you play gospel music, rhythm & blues, pop, rock, ragtime, jazz, praise & worship, or whatever.

The principals are exactly the same no matter what style you play in.

By learning a few runs & riffs that flow out of each chord progression, you will be actually practicing the "fancy stuff" you can then include in thousands and thousands of songs!
