Saturday Songwriting: Strange Light

This week I’m wrapping up a loose end I noticed when I used BEAD Guides Chord Flow to pair Major Chords with their relative minor chords and what I call their “Alt-Substitutes.” (Here’s the sheet).

I noticed that every chord in that map has two chords they might use as substitutes. All of them except the chords in the top left corner and bottom right corner. They each seem to have only one substitute. Is there another chord they might sub in for?   

(Spoiler Alert: The answer is yes). Check out the sheet below!



Part II of the Interview with Timmy on the Raw Songwriting Podcast! A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of getting interviewed by David Coile for the Raw Songwriting Podcast. It was a great time, so good it had to be split into two episodes. Here’s a link to Part II. (It can also be found on whichever podcast platform you use).
