Hey Tomas,
You explained in this video that the first, fourth and fifth chords are always major chords and the second, third and sixth are always minor, but that is only if you’re using a major scale.
What’s the formula for a minor scale? Also could you make a PDF file with more examples of common chord progressions so we can practice them in different keys and it would be great if you could give some links to songs that include them.

Hi Shulamit,

1. The pattern for minor is i – iv – v (or V… it’s common practice to change this to a major chord).

2. I’ll add the PDF idea to my list of things to do. I’ll have to decide where this fits and how to do it so it will make sense. I’ll have to think more about the song links also. I’ve done that before… but ended up with links that stopped working. Maybe I’ll come up with a brilliant idea.

3. Hint: don’t miss any of the practice sessions for this month.

Glad your back and going for it 🙂
