How to build chords progressions in major key
In the last lesson we introduced a fundamental concept: functional harmony. To understand functional harmony means to understand which is its role and function of each chord in the key.
We have also managed to put the chords, according to their role into different groups.
Today we will put all of this into practice.
We will infact build different harmonic progressions in some of the principal major keys and try to alternate chords of different groups.
This will allow us to obtain variety and balance in building harmony in a piece.
Moreover we will see how to use harmonic patterns obtaining a very effective result, avoiding the monotonous result that repetitions often give.
We are going further along the pathway to success…
