Four chords in non-repeating order*
In the discussion about this month's challenge, all permutations
of the "Four Chords of Predetermined Pop Success" were posted.
unSane said "Of course the real challenge would be to through-compose something using all of them" which sounded like a fantastic exercise to me, especially putting them together in a way that comes across as a sonic whole, rather than four distinct sections. And I tried to make it sound like my other material also.
note: i changed the order of the chords in the G section, so that it's
G C Am F
G Am C F
G Am F C
G C F Am
G F C Am
if this song becomes an international smash hit, it is really going to be a pain for me to play live without looking at the sheet music, let me tell you.
*the challenge chords - C G Am F - do repeat twice in the intro and once at the end. The intro was just there as a placeholder at first, and then I got used to hearing it.
