Thank you for your kindness and musical help.


Hi, Eddie--

Here are some common minor chord progressions:

i–V–i–iv–i Example: Black Magic Woman (Santana)

i–bVI–iv–bVII–i Example: Mr.Jones (Counting Crows)

i-iv-V Example: The Thrill is Gone (B.B. King)

i - VII - VI - V Example: Hit the Road Jack (Ray Charles)

i - III -IV - VI Example: House of the Rising Sun (The Animals)

i - VII - VI - VII Example: All Along the Watchtower (Bob Dylan)

If you really want to delve into the harmonic and melodic minor scales, there are two books that you need:

Guitar Secrets: Harmonic Minor Revealed

Guitar Secrets: Melodic Minor Revealed

Even though these are books are geared toward guitar, the information is extremely valuable to players of any instrument.

Hope this helps!
