-- A reviewer from Cleveland writes: "Move Your Songwriting to The Next Level. The Money Chords book opened my eyes to the importance of Descending, Ascending, and Static/Pedal-Point Bass Lines in constructing interesting chord progressions for my songs. Great job, keep up the good work. Also, ... that has even more useful information on Popular Chord Progressions that is of interest to songwriters." -- A review from New York says: "Chord Progressions cannot be copyrighted which is a fact well-known by jazz and blues songwriters over the past hundred years. This book takes you beyond Blues and Rhythm Changes progressions to reveal popular progressions used in Rock as well as the Standards.

This book not only shows you the basic progression such as E-A-B Rock progression but gives numerous examples of how the world's best songwriters have embellished and changed it to create a new song. In the above example, it shows many possibilities such as "With A Little Luck" where Paul McCartney transforms the basic E-A-B progression into the following great ascending bass line progression: E-E/G#-A-B11.

If you're looking to move to the next level, this is a good place study the chord progressions that have gone before."
