Chord Progressions: Hip Hop

Posted by Ms.Tris On July - 3 - 2008

What’s up all, been busy this week with a new project. I’m working on some eastcoast beats and I’m using some chord progressions to make a loop for chopping. Take a look at a nice video from Perpetual Productions. I like the way he explains his use of chords, and plays the beat at the beginning and end…enjoy and practice practice..

    why did you leave out the 2nd and 3rd note of the scale?… i was having trouble making chord progressions with those in it.. but you took them out… so i feel dumb but i just wanted to know if there was a reason?…

  3. @JohnnyMak The video is from another producer :)..He’s making a simple chord progression. I usually explain it as preference. There’s no rule saying you must use every chord in a progression group when composing..I don’t find many songs that use every chord of a progression actually. It’s up to you as the composer which chords you will use. Sometimes less is more sonically…
