Joel, I know ASFS has got the elaborate-y bit which is several different progressions, then it goes into the slower bit with the choir, which I figured might be several different progressions, though I wasn't sure and as I said, I am completely unaware as to what they are.

I think Be Good to Them Always by the Books also has a cool progression, which again seems quite elaborate.

Haha, I'm looking mostly for small chunks of chords that form a progression Tongue

But then again, I did put an entire chorus in the OP...

YES, THEY DO. At least Townsend and Hendrix learned it, even if they never used it in their professional music career. Tongue

I know a lot of basic theory, just not chord naming and stuff, but I don't really use any of the stuff I do know, at least not consciously. Most of my guitar playing is based of either "It usually sounds good if I put my fingers in this shape" or "I'm just gonna play random notes until I figure out the one I'm thinking of".

And nothing wrong with that. I rarely, if ever, use theory to develop more than a VERY basic idea. I mean, the goal is not to use theory to write everything. That just isn't very...well, creative, to me...

I mean it can be done, I feel like thats how composers used to write, like Bach and Beethoven. But yeah, I definitely agree. The theory you know does help you understand why things sounds good sometimes though, so I guess thats good. And it can give you more of an appreciation for music in general.

Well, kind of...there were certain conventions they followed (voice leading, among others). I don't think those guys let theory dictate the composition of the piece. The idea of "If it sounds good" still prevailed in a way. Bach and Beethoven were just such musical geniuses that making it sound good was easy for them. lol
