    Money Chords:A Songwriter's Sourcebook of Popular Chord Progressions

    Take your lyrics and put them in time-proven chord progressions, or take chart topping chord progressions and put your own spin on them. An awesome, must-have text for songwriters.

    Money Chords:A Songwriter's Sourcebook of Popular Chord Progressions

    Money Chords is the book to turn to when the other Songwriting Books tell you to study the chord structures of the best songs. Money Chords is the first comprehensive popular chord progression dictionary that I have come across and it is sure to become an essential companion to a Rhyming Dictionary and Lyric Book in every songwriter's library. Money Chords introduces the 80 most popular chord progressions (plus all common variations) and the 12 tools used to create them without resorting to confusing and complicated discussions of music theory. The book includes thousands of examples which are arranged in a manner that allows you to identify progressions common to a specific time period and the evolution of various progression types. It also allows the reader to study and compare how the best songwriters and performers have used the same or similar progressions to create different hit songs. Money Chords is the real deal and gets my Five Star rating.
