“In this video I want to go one step further and talk about building progressions,” says Johnson, “one of the most common progressions is the one four progression.” Claude demonstrates this concept in the key of C, which has no sharps or flats, to make it easier to understand. Claude starts off with the one chord, which is C and then the four chord which is F. Johnson continues by demonstrating this concept in the key of G, which makes the one chord G and the four chord C.
