How to Write a Song | Chord Functions Pt.1

Post by JimJam Guitar » February 21st, 2019, 5:40 am

A lesson in music theory to understand how chords fit together and understanding how to make a song move forward.

This is for anyone who would like to know what exactly goes on between the chords you play, why certain chords are chosen over others in progressions, and how to use this knowledge to create chord progressions with the specific feeling you're after. That feeling being one of the song moving forward, staying still, getting more tense, or being very chilled. Bear in mind this is the foundation for harmonic forward motion, and there are many other aspects.

If you have any questions please leave them in the comments, either here or on the video. I look forward to helping you understand this topic :)
