Thread Name: Country chord question
Subject: RE: Country chord question
Boy, this thread hits pretty close to home! I have been known to politely and diplomatically ask for the iim chord change in strategic parts of tunes, and also have been known to say the I, vi, ii, V7 are some of my favorite progressions. For those who don't recognize it, these are the old doowop/rock'n'roll chords that went to sooooo many songs of yesteryear. One of my pickin' pals knows when the @#!&%! chords are coming by the look on my face when we play together. Luckily, he's pretty sharp about this sort of thing, and takes it good naturedly. I only got into trouble once at the Augusta Heritage fiddle workshop in Elkins WV, though. That's another story. Soddy
