The most powerful concept in learning to play songs by ear is the “1 4 5 progression”, or the “3 chord song”.
This can also include “1 4 5 6” (or “I IV V vi“) progressions and 4-chord songs.
Different keys, different arrangements, different styles – but the same progression!
Learn about this progression and playing songs by ear becomes much easier!
