Four Chords

Have I posted this before? Probably. But still. Funny.

It validates my long time hatred of Journey.

The four chords are the I, V, vi, and IV, played here in E. Those old 50's doo-wop songs--the chords you play when you play Heart and Soul on the piano--were the same four chords in a different order (I, vi, IV, V).

There must be a cultural metaphor in the shift from the authentic cadence of the patriarchal 50s to the plagal indecision of the 1960s and beyond, but beyond this very sentence, I don't have a good theory for you on that one.

Point is, it's the same four chords in a different order.

Here's more. The Canon in D that everyone knows from Pachelbel might best be called "Five Chords": the I, V, vi, iii/III, IV, (I, IV) and V. Just about half of Oasis's songs use this progression--it's really pretty amazing that they got away with writing the same song over and over--along with Puff the Magic Dragon, Kylie Minogue (I should be so lucky), Aerosmith (Crying), Green Day (Basket Case) and many others.

The More You KnowTM.

Guess I had better get that new G-string I need then, so I can start warbling away to all the classic oldies.

Yes, and after that, make sure you have all the strings on your guitar too.

Nobody can be like Brian Wilson. I'm not sure the genius is worth the madness, though.

Rock's big three--IV, V and I--are more often written/heard as a ii, V, and I in jazz. But a player often then further subs out those chords for others that sound less predictable or familiar. In jazz, chords approach the infinite.

9's always come with 7ths. If they don't, they're called 2's.
