Progressions Using the Basic E Shape
Let’s put the basic E shape to work in some progressions.
Here, we need to remember where these chords are located. Memorize what the names are for these chords!
A Good One
This second progression is the intro to Jane’s Addiction’s Ocean Size. Search out the tab if you desire to play it exactly as it is on Nothing’s Shocking [arpeggiated on recording].
I-IV-I-V in E
This is a sweet sounding progression. This one is in the key of E. The E is the I chord; the A is the IV; the B is the V.
As with everything, experiment with these all of these chord voicings [even the scary movie chords!], and make up your own progressions.
