Spicy Chord Progressions Article PicIn this video, you learn three easy yet spicy, sophisticated chord progressions that sound amazing. Despite the advanced names of the chords used, they are as easy to play as standard chord progressions.

In this lesson, I break down 3 progressions that use a variety of chords including the augmented and minor/major 7th chords, add 9 chords, and major 7th chords amongst others.

The third progression is reminiscent of a song EVERYBODY knows, but I wonder if you’ll pick it. It’s not so obvious until I point it out to you.

But first, you learn the shapes that will be used throughout each progression as a whole in isolation.

Then you learn 3 beautiful sounding progressions that are made up of these chord shapes.

I break down each progression in detail so you can follow exactly what I am doing, and also understand what is going on so you can create your own versions and variations of each progression.
