Complementing the best-selling "How To Write Songs On Guitar", this easy-to-use book will help you write better songs by explaining the art of writing effective chord sequences. It shows: How three and four chords can lay the foundation for a simple song, and how to move on to progressions using five and six chords; How to give your chord sequences additional colour by adding chords that are not strictly in key, including blues chords; How to write chord sequences for songs in minor keys as well as major keys, and how to take progressions into new territories by changing key; and, How to fine-tune the colour of your chords by understanding the emotional potential of sevenths, sixths and ninths. All examples come with easy-to-read guitar chord boxes and the accompanying 20-track audio CD features original recordings that illustrate some of the points made in the book.
