CHORD EXAMPLE 8
To show how versatile the circle of 4ths is, this example is very 80s. From now on we’ll deviate from full diatonic sequences as you’re more likely encounter shorter, altered variations of the circle of 4ths in practical use. Notice how in this example the E and D chords are major - they are functioning as secondary dominants to the chords that follow (ie Am7 and G). Notice too that the G chord at the end doesn’t go directly to C.
