Chord Progressions & The Circle of 5ths: A Ukulele Workshop with Jim D’Ville

Being able to hear and identify chord progressions will go a long way toward demystifying the basic structure of music. Before you know it you'll be hearing and recognizing dominant seven and diatonic chord progressions. This exciting workshop will open your ears to the way all songs work around the Circle of 5ths. Knowledge of chords C, F, G7, A7, D7, E7, Am, Dm, and Em is helpful.
