Watch the Connect Sections online guitar lesson by Ravi from 1-2-3 Songwriting

The reason why I wanted us to start our progressions with the same chord is because it will be easier to make them flow together, and also easier to establish which progression will be the verse and which one will be the chorus. However, one problem you might encounter by starting both sections with the same chord is that once linked together, the transition isn't exciting enough - perhaps the chorus doesn't explode, and we want it to. Perhaps we can add a break so the song breathes, or maybe just a different chord to break the pattern. Or maybe we need to write a new section to help connect these two - something to help the song build into the chorus. Often this is called a "pre-chorus" or a "ramp" that leads us into the chorus. For this exercise, let's write a ramp. You want to start the progression with a chord that is different from the verse and chorus sections, but still in the same key. Go ahead and write this transition, and check that off your list.
