It’s easier to learn new songs, pop, rock, jazz, country or whatever, if you understand progressions. Yes, there is sense to it all and Fred will explain chord movement and song structure, the circle of 5ths, the 12-bar blues, scale-wise patterns and more! We’ll look at lots of songs, including your suggestions, and see how they work.
