Saturday Songwriting: Proud Flesh

Recently, I was watching another video by Jake Lizzio from Signal Music Studios. He’s talking about the chord progression from the song “Something,” by The Beatles. 

It’s a gorgeous song which uses a lot of “borrowed chords.” Borrowed chords are something we haven’t talked about here yet, so I figured why not check ‘em out, so that’s what this weeks worksheet talks about. 

As a cool side note, “Something” uses both the major and minor “line cliches” that I posted about a couple of weeks ago too. Check out the progression George Harrison put together. It’s the kind of song you’ll want to steal ideas from for years and years to come once you understand it.  

The Prompt:
