Watch the I-vi-ii-V Progression online guitar lesson by Frank Vignola from Modern Method for Guitar

In this segment of the video we cover the I-vi-ii-V progression in the key of C. This is a common progression that can be heard in all styles of music. The goal for the following play-along using this progression is to come up with simple melodic ideas using what you have learned throughout this course. For example:

* All the notes in the C major scale will work over this progression

* Imply other tonal centers over the V chord to build tension

* Play the root of each chord

* Connect the roots with leading tones

* Play just the 3rd of each chord

* Connect them with leading tones

* Play just the 5th of each chord

* Connect them with leading tones

* The pentatonic major and minor scales are always an option

With this information in mind, pick one or two concepts each time you play over the following play-along track and make simple melodic ideas with them. Make other jam tracks in other keys and in other tempos.
