Hi guys, i'm looking into chord progressions and wondered what your favourites are? You know the ones where you are listening to a CD and completely don't expect that progression that just grabs hold of your soul and throws it about 1000 feet into the air? Yeah that one. Post as a tab, chord names or Roman numerals. I will start off:

My fav has to be the chords to Naomi by Neutral Milk Hotel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Ooj6pEd6YM
which goes |G# |A |E |E |
then in the verse has |E |C# |D |A |

Just something about that really gets me.

now you go...

Between Jazz, Rock and Country, there are so many that I couldn't even begin to pick out one in particular.

THIS

But I quite like the progression to the intro of "Gateways" by Dimmu Borjir

Not sure about the actual progression though :\ given it's kinda orchestral
I think it would go something like Ebm | Ebm | Bm | Bm | Ebm | Ebm| Bm | Fm Am |
...but that's just a huge guess

Around a third of the way through Time as an Imploding Unit / Waiting for Green by the amazing Biffy Clyro. Brilliant double-stoppy power chord stuff.

That's a really long song, but also an absolutely brilliant one and it has enough awesome progressions in it to kill a metaphorical musical horse.

And, best of all, it's a B-side from their third single and first album.

I think this progression in particular goes something like:

e]-----------------------------
b]-----------------------------
g]-5-5-5-5-4-4-4-4-0-0-0-0-0-0-
d]-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-
a]-----------------------------
e]-----------------------------

e]-------------------------------
b]-------------------------------
g]-5-5-5-5-4-4-4-5-7-7-7-7-7-4-4-
d]-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-
a]-------------------------------
e]-------------------------------

e--------------------------
b]--------------------------
g]--10-10-10-10--9--9--9--9-
d]---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-
a]---------------------------
e]--10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-

e]---------------------------
b]---------------------------
g]-7-7-7-7-4-4-4-4-----------
d]-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----------
a]---------------------------
e]---------------------------

I6, IV, cadential 6/4, I. i love bach.

(Amaj/C#, Dmaj, Amaj/E, Emaj, Amaj in the key of A major. Emaj is substitutable for E7. works well, too, if you have a melody over it with the 9th in the soprano voice)
Anfangen ist leicht, Beharren eine Kunst.

^Oooh that reminds me:

i-v6-iv6-V

Phrygian half cadence preceded by i-v6. The ending of every Baroque slow movement ever.


Swap that V for a v and stick a VI7b after it with the 7th in the soprano.
