  • Hi GMC!

    Today we will also look at the chord pivoting, and what we can do with it. Harmony will be famous I-VI-II-V chord progression in the key of F#. So, chord are F# maj7, D# min7, G# min7, C# 7. There are three parts in which pivot note is different, so in the first part we have A#, then in second F#, then C#. This example contains lots of chord voicings, some of which are pretty unusual, like C# 7 in the second part. Memorize those chord shapes to expand your chord vocabulary. I-VI-II-V progression is great for experimenting with different chord voicings, try to invent your own, try with different pivot notes, and be sure to stay in the key.
