music theory Aug 04, 2022

We all know one guy that decries and derides music theory as limiting creativity. News flash – it’s not true! Today I’m going to show you how chord progressions work and how you can apply this information to your writing process. Yep, I’m proving that one guy we all know wrong.

In this video, you’ll learn:

  • How scales, keys, chords, harmony, and melody all come together to create a chord progression.
  • The roles and functions of each scale degree in a major or minor key so you can build your own progressions with ease.
  • How to apply this and any music theory knowledge into your writing process in a productive way that enhances creativity!

What’s your current process for writing a chord progression? Is music theory part of it at all? Let me know in the comments below the video!

Thanks so much for being here. You rock.
