Be Brave

“Brave” and “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman hail from our ChordTime Piano Hits. They both employ a chord progression that’s been a staple of popular music since the 1950s: I‑vi–IV–V. Given the age and popularity of this progression, how does it still sound fresh? Watch the video as Dr. Faber discusses alternative methods of voicing these chords to fit different musical styles.
