Re: Best books on chord progressions for guitar?
Best thing to do:
Learn all of the chords in Cmajor
Learn those and number them in alphabetical order starting on the tonic (cmajor).
Your sequence should look like this:
1. Cmajor 2. Dminor 3. Eminor 4. FMajor 5. GMajor 6.Aminor 7. Bdiminished
Now make a number pattern that consists of either 2 - 4 - 8 of these numbers for now.
You could have this:
1 5 2 3 4 6 5
C Major, Gmajor, D minor, E minor, F Major, Aminor, Gmajor. Try looping it.
Simple tends to work better to start with so.
4 5 1 5
FMajor, G major, C major, Gmajor.
You can go on forever with these tools until you start to figure out what you think sounds pleasing. You can then base sections of your music on this.
Hope this helps..
