The Brown’stone: The 2-5-1 Chord Progression Using Triads & Inversions
This week in The Brown’stone on No Treble, I want to take another look at triads and inversions. In this lesson, I’m going to show you how you can use these three notes to play the II-V-I chord progression in a variety of different ways.
So grab your bass and follow along! It’s pretty amazing when you realize how much you can do with so little.
