"Doug: In the key of G, G is the "root" or the I chord. Use your fingers. if G is your thumb, your first finger is A, or the II, B is your next finger, or the III chord in the key of G...get it? All blues, most rock and roll, and so MOST…"

I play mostly by reading chord charts for the bass and the melody by ear/improv etc.My question is what are some chord progressions that you use during the end of the service, or just a quiet time. ie.When the people are hearing from God. or like when the pastor makes an invitation or is praying, and I'm playing in the background, to lessen the awkwardness i guess you can say of the silence?I'm just looking for new…See More
