Watch the Try Relative Minor in a Progression online guitar lesson by Christie Lenée from Creative Fingerstyle Guitar for Songwriters

We've got a great riff that's fun to play. That's a great start, but where do go from there as you continue to shape your song? A great way to build your song arrangement is to try the relative minor to bring in another section of the tune. It twists the listener's ear and inspires you to continue unfolding your story whether it be through your lyrics or in the next melody of your instrumental arrangement. Try it out and have some fun.
