About This Class

Circle of 5ths # 8:  Six Songs Applications - Use Circle of 5ths to understand & predict chord progression!

Now that we  have these 2 Inner Circle Templates & 2 Circles, we can use them to understand chord progressions of songs.  This is how we eventually learn to play by ear!  We will be able to predict chord progressions using the Cirlce movement.

In this course, we will apply the Circle of 5ths music theory to 6 songs.

I will analyze with you why these chords are put there!

Using these 2 Circle templates, you will be able to understand chord progressions of thousands of songs.  Many songs move in similar fashion.

After understanding music theory in  Circle of 5ths #1, #2, #3, #4,#5, #6, #7, #8 -  you can take out your instrument and play these songs easily as you move from one chord to the next.

We will do the following 6 songs:
