Just curious :0)
impossible to answer for me......i like a bunch of them.
but if some huge power said i could only play one progression for the rest of my life, i guess it would be the blues progression. I-IV-V.
some people have said they quit playing blues because nothing more can be done......thats a crock. there are tons of things beyond pentatonics.
Right now, its this one.
The whole beginning part of "Lenny" by SRV. Something so serene about those chords.
the thing about the blues progression, you can make it into just sbout anything using chord substitutions and inversions, and subs for those inversions.
it goes on forever.
A handful of songs I like that have cool chord progressions (at least to me)
Downeaster Alexa - Billy Joel
Sleep Walk - Santo and Johnny
Honey Don't - Carl Perkins/Beatles
Nobody Knows You When You're Down And Out - Jimmy Cox
Couldn't say I have a favorite, but the chord progression behind the solo in Dire Straits' Tunnel of Love deserves an honorable mention, especially when picked out appropriately.
EWF’s That’s The Way Of The World .
I IV V is the mother of all chord progressions.
Like others, there are many chord progressions I like. One of my favourites comes during the intro to 'I'll Keep it with Mine' as covered by Fairport Convention. As far as I can approximate it, it's G / Am7 / Bm plus high G note / Am7.
favorite swing turn around: generally a twist of a generic vi/ii/v, favoring 13ths (i's & ii's) and 9ths (everything else)
i / #v – vi / #ii – ii / #v – v /#i – i
works nicely with horns.
beyond that, having a favorite progression seems ... discriminatory.
Any that I can remember when I need them.
Wheres the 1?
Anything with 7ths.
I'm in the I IV V group, but there are a lot of really good songs that use I bVII IV. More than a lot.
Got anything with prime numbers?
I II III V VII. You could do something with that I reckon.
Here's one I wrote that I think is kind of cool. Am BDim C F Am E7 Am E7
