I–V–vi–IV chords

#1 Post by leesmapman »

With PSB being a pop act, I was wondering if they ever did the I–V–vi–IV chord progression, which is the pop chords progression. I'm not a music maker, don't know much about chords and stuff, but I was wondering if they ever did.

As far as I know: no

But I'm ready to learn the right answer
A blues would be in B flat, pain defining wisdom,
but the soul is in the high hat, programmed in the system.

Always On My Mind, Red Letter Day (first half of the chorus at least),.

Mea culpa. I don’t know where in the song it’s used though.

The brass riff part / verse.

And if you look up the chords for A red letter day, you'll find F - C - Dm - Bb. Granted, that's only the first 4 of an 8 chord phrase, but the ones we're looking for.

Thanks. Splitting hairs, Always on my mind is G D Em D C D rather than a straight G D Em C. Not sure if that's how it was originally written or if the boys re-arranged it.
