Soloing/Bass Lines: Experiment with the notes above throughout the song, but focus on the Chord Notes of each chord being played.  



I-IV-V is the backbone of country, blues, and rock & roll!  Listen to the way "I" = "home", "IV" = "pushes away", "V" = " tension".

Think "home" when you hear "I" chords & think "tension" for "V" chords.  "V" chords OFTEN lead back to "I" chords!

Going from a "I" chord to a minor "vi" chord is very common!

  Now see how many of these chord progressions you can play along with when you don't know which track is coming up next! Use the Roman numerals that show up in the audio player as your clues & practice learning those Roman numerals here!  

  This is where you really start going a long ways towards training your ear and building the muscle memory you need to play songs "on the fly"!
