Topic: Love song with interesting chord progressions

I'm not much of a songwriter, ive written a couple a songs and i was wonderin if you advanced or pretty good guys wouldnt mind writting or suggest a nice love song sayin how much you love someone but with various chords (eg. not just G,C,D,G,C,D blah blah). Thanks

Re: Love song with interesting chord progressions

I dont write many love songs now but I find minor chords which are used a ot in sad songs ( as previously discussed elsewhere) sound good in love songs.

Tesla have a great song called "love song" it has Am,D,Bm,Em,G, C

you could make a love song up with any sort of chords really, it is the lyrics that can put a song into a category.

once you do it, you could share it wit hus all and post it on the songwriters section


ye get some that are cut out for the job and others just get by from pretending

Re: Love song with interesting chord progressions

Look for stuff by Bryan Adams, he's got lots of good love songs with diverse chord progressions. Examples are: Have you ever really loved a woman, please forgive me, heaven (my favorite), and I'll always be right there. The most interesting one is definetly the first one, i can't actually tab out the song but I can tell you that the chords used include Eb Cm D Bb F G D Am7. There is one good tab and one bad one on the net, it's pretty easy to tell them apart, GOOD LUCK

Re: Love song with interesting chord progressions

Here are some interesting classics . . .
Donovan   Catch the Wind … ranspose=0
Love Me Tender   Elvis … ranspose=0
I Want to Hold Your Hand    Beatles … ranspose=0
Annie's Song    John Denver … ranspose=0

I like these because they all have a nice loving message along with great melody lines.  The backing chords are not that unusual, but the are a little more interesting than I, IV, V chords.

Re: Love song with interesting chord progressions

Wish I could by Nora Jones. The chord pattern is almost hypnotizing to me. The first time I heard it I was taken in by how hauntingly sad the song is. I think the tab'ed version is on Chordie but you can get the idea.
