The Sensitive Female Chord Progression


Recommended Posts

This blog definitely qualifies as the "stumbled-upon" category, but it's got a lot of interesting stuff that I think is actually worth reading, despite the intentionally whimsical name: The Sensitive Female Chord Progression.

And while we are on the subject of chord progressions, I give you http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdxkVQy7QLM. A cello player's railings against a cello player's classic(al) curse. Also fun listening, and yet, informative as well.

Really, it makes you want to scream ... (another fun link)

(Wikipedia ... :-[ ... I swear, you can get lost in there!)

I do have a few contributions to my name, although the politics among Wikipedia contributors can be very intense. It's more than I want to waste time with, so I just toss-in a contribution and don't look back.

As for the post ... I definitely liked both of these pieces (and the "scream") and felt that their whimsical titles just added a little to the fun. But they had serious and thought-provoking content.

This is the third most used chord progression in modern music!

iv-IV-I-V

it's also often conceived as:

I-V-iv-IV

but that's still the same sequence.

Only I-IV-V or I-VI-iv-V would be more used.

Examples of this chord progression that aren't listed on that link in the original post:

Alicia Keys - No One

The Beatles - Let It Be

Elton John - Can You Feel The Life Tonight

Black Eyed Peas - Where Is The Love

Crowded House - Fall At Your Feet

Journey - Don't Stop Believing

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under The Bridge (and also Soul To Squeeze)

Marcy Playground - Sex and Candy

James Blunt - You're Beautiful

Mika - Happy Ending

Maroon 5 - She Will Be Loved

Michael Jackson - Man In The Mirror

U2 - With Or Without You

Bob Marley - No Woman No Cry

Bush - Glycerine

Men At Work - Land Down Under

A-Ha - Take On Me

It's extremely cliched, in other words, but obviously if you have good tune that works with it then feel free...

Hey, I think iv should be vi....

Yes I typed iv when I meant vi:

So the progression is:

vi-IV-I-V

it's also often conceived as:

I-V-vi-IV
