The Essential Chords Progression is a companion App to "The Essential Secrets of Songwriting"

Chords that work! From basic progressions to ones that change key - dozens of chord progressions for you to use in your songwriting.

With Audio Samples of the progressions. For every aspiring Songwriter who plays the guitar or the piano or any other melodic instrument.

Eliminating Chord Muddle

Chord progressions are the part of writing songs that has many composers stumped. For those who find it to be a mystery, their chords sound, at best, like chord successions, and at worst, chord muddle.

What is chord muddle? Have you ever felt that you can’t get one chord to feel like it needs to go to another? Do you feel that your progressions just meander from one chord to the next, without feeling like it’s making sense? That’s chord muddle.

You can spend a lot of your precious time learning the theory of how chords progress from one to another (and I believe you should!), but you want to get going with writing songs!

In this app, we have included dozens of useful chord progressions. Feel free to use them in any of your songs: as such, chord progressions are not protected by copyright, so you don’t need permission to use any of them.

About the chords in this App

The chords in this App are completely modifiable, and it’s certainly not an exhaustive list. But hopefully they’ll be enough to inspire you to get writing, and keep writing.

So I encourage you to take these progressions and modify them any way you like. Don’t be afraid to let your ears have the final say. If you like something you see, use it. If you like a progression, but feel you’d like to change it – that’s what you’re supposed to do!

We have written the chords using guitar fret board notation, but the suggested voicing is exactly that... a suggestion. It’s assumed that you will voice these chords on your guitar

or piano or organ in whatever way suits your song. The same directive applies to the musical notation. The notes

are meant to only indicate to you the notes found in each chord. Always use your imagination (and good taste!) to decide how to ultimately voice these chords.

More than anything, these pages give you lists of chord progressions that work. It’s up to you to decide how and when to use them. Remember, simplicity is more important than complexity. Just because

this app contains dozens of progressions doesn’t mean that you are supposed to try to use as many as possible in one song. In fact, most songs will become jumbled and confusing if you try to use more than two or three different progressions. An important goal of songwriting is to create something that listeners will remember, and they won’t remember songs that use too many chords, melodies or words.

2/5 stars

Rip off

A major waste of $10! No minor 7 w/ds , 9w/ds, no 13th chord progressions.. This is very basic.

0/5 stars

Absolute waste of money

For ten dollars you can go and buy a real chord progression book written by real musicians. This app should be .99

5/5 stars

Great Tool for musicans. Its a no brainer.

Bought this app in the first week of release and use it since then. Its easy to work with. Just turn it on and browse through the various (i guess over 300 samples) progressions. If you find some fitting chords, use it. All progressions are free and free to use.

I liked the minor progressions the most. Some are advanced, some are basic. i guess they put all famous pop harmonies in this app.
