“You may have heard about a 1 4 5 progression before,” says Darville, “you may have even heard of a 1 4 2 5 progression.” Jacques demonstrates the 1 4 5 chord progression in the key of C as follows; starting on C at the 8th fret of the 6th string, Jacques plays a major scale in order to find the first, fourth and fifth notes of the scale, which are C, F and G. Rather than just playing those notes, Jacques builds chord upon those notes. “You can use any chord,” says Darville, “when playing the blues the 7th chord is the one you want to use.” For the one chord, Jacques uses C7 bar chord that consists of baring your first finger across the 8th fret, 2nd finger on the 9th fret of the 3rd string, 3rd finger on the 10th fret of the 5th string and 4th finger on the 11th fret of the 2nd string. For the four chord, Jacques uses the F7 chord, which consists of baring your first finger across the 8th fret of the first five strings, 3rd finger on the 10th fret of the 4th string and 4th finger on the 10th fret of the 2nd string. For the five chord, G7, Jacques simply moves the A7 up one whole step. Guitar tabs are available for this easy blues guitar lesson at BluesGuitar.com.
