Quick Win #46

2-Chord Connections over an RC

Here's a quick summary of the main takeaways from this Quick Win!

  • a 2-chord connection is great to bring in chromatic movement in your parts later
  • you don't have to use the 2-chord connection on every chord in your progression
  • you can also treat your root tones as black boxes and bring in more complexity there


This technique is outstanding for creating new material out of existing progressions. You might even take any existing song and insert a 2-chord connection in some selected spots to create a unique idea that you can develop further.
