I understand music theory thoroughly and I understand the different elements that makes up songs and music. However, I have a problem hearing chord changes and progressions in songs. I can hear the different things that's taking place in a song so I can very well be hearing the chord progression and chord changes and just not know that's what I'm hearing. I find it a little difficult to hear the chord changes clearly with all the other music being played on top of them. I was taught to workout the bass line using relative pitch and then figure out the chord qualities. Is the an effective method??
Do they occur only in certain parts of a song?
Can you use different chord progressions for different sections of a song or do they just stay the same all the way throughout the song?
Are there any rules of thumb? Please bless me with some information!
Anyone able to workout the sections of these 2 songs? If so, do they have chord progressions, where do I listen for them, and what are the chords?
