Chord PDF and MuseScore at my Patreon: https://bit.ly/2JCJQfV Analyzing great progressions is not just an academic exercise- it's a way to introduce new movements and musical effects to your composition lexicon. In this video, we're taking a look at Bruno Mars' "When I Was Your Man", which is in the key of C Major and uses all of the garden variety diatonic chords in the key (save B diminished). In addition, it uses several borrowed chords and/or secondary dominants, and is structured in a way to really get as much juice out of the C Major/A Minor tonality as possible. A few things to note- Pop music is not classical music. And pop can not always be described in traditional terms like Roman Numeral analysis easily. However I think it's worth a try, and I've made some less-than-popular notations that are worth explaining. I name a Csus2/B and notate it as Isus2/7, which is to imply it's the Tonic Chord (I) and it's sus2, but it's over the 7th tone of the key (B). During that part of the video I keep calling it a C but it's really a Csus2. You can also think of it as a Gadd11/B, then it would be a V chord. One other option there for that one chord would be an Emb6, it should provide a similar "slide" from the Am to the C. Related Videos! Chords of Major: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8eIt...
