Watch the Create a New Section online guitar lesson by Ravi from 1-2-3 Songwriting

Now it is time to create another song section. The process is the same in that we'll develop another chord progression. In general, you want to keep this progression in the same key as the last, but you can choose different chords within the key (this is where the key chart will come in handy). For the sake of this exercise, start your new chord progression with the same chord as the last one. You can play the chord a little differently, perhaps embellish it with a "tasty chord" version. Again, choosing three or four chords will give you a nice complete section.
