Here’s a popular progression called a 1-4-7- 3.

These are demonstrated in to keys: A minor & D minor.

I thought it would be nice to demonstrate an open chord example and quickly move into barre chords for examples of a 6th string form and a 5th string form.

Having knowledge of this progression on the 6th string and 5th string makes it very easy to transpose to any key you need.

If you’re in a band or accompany yourself while you sing, this is very valuable!

Example 1:

    Am      Dm        G        C
E |-0--------1--------3--------0---|
B |-1--------3--------0--—-----1---|
G |-2--------2--------0--------0---|
D |-2--------0--------0--------2---|
A |-0-----------------2--------3---|
E |-------------------3------------|

Example 2:

   Am        Dm       G        C
E |-5--------5--------3-----------|
B |-5--------6--------3--—-----5--|
G |-5--------7--------4--------5--|
D |-7--------7--------5--------5--|
A |-7--------5--------5--------3--|
E |-5-----------------3-----------|

Example 3:

    Dm       G       C        F
E |-5--------3----------------1---|
B |-6--------3-------5---—----1---|
G |-7--------4-------5--------2---|
D |-7--------5-------5--------3---|
A |-5--------5-------3--------3---|
E |----------3----------------1---|
