Moveable Chords Combined.

Before trying this factsheet look at the following 3 factsheets – Moveable chords in A, D and E.

In this factsheet you will look at combining the moveable chord shapes below to give a range of possibilities to any chord progression you may encounter.

This is particularly useful for songs which one or two chord progressions and repeat them over and over again.

In practice using the 3 Major and 3 Minor chords shown below with the 4 bar progressions used in the examples you have 3 options for every chord given.

This means that you get 3 X 3 X 3 X 3 = 81 possible variations for the 4 bar progression.
