Hi, I'm Brad Carlton and welcome to Guitar Lab: The I IV bVI V Progression. This course will explore various harmonic and melodic options as applied to the I IV bVI V progression. This chord sequence can be found in various styles including blues, jazz, and pop. You'll learn how to approach this progression from the standpoint of the street key as well as the theoretical key. This will offer up various scale options which will serve you in both your rhythm playing as well as your soloing. The beauty of this progression is that it can be approached horizontally by just using the minor pentatonic scale or you can use a vertical approach where you change scales with each chord. Both of these approaches will be explained and demonstrated as well as jazz principles such as using the bV substitution for the V7 altered chord.
