Saturday Songwriting: Lost on the Air

Last week, we talked about weaving 7th chords. This week, I want to share a really cool sounding progression that uses some of those 7th chords. And because we did the work last week of learning how to weave those chords, you’ll have a chance to really see how this progression fits together: one note simply descends of fret at a time in each chord, sort of like walking down a stairway. 

This is known as a “line cliché” in music theory.   

You don’t have to remember that, but if you google it you’ll find a whole bunch of other chord changes like the one here today. (I’ll likely explore others sometime in the next few months).      

The Prompt:
