Lesson #2: The I, IV and V Chords for the Key of C

i-iv-vquestionmarkWhat are the I, IV and V chords?

The numbers IIV and V come from a musical relationship called harmony. It might not sound very cool but music is based on maths. If you can get your head wrapped around some of this math learning songs and writing your own songs can be easy and less mysterious.

The numbers I, IV and V refer to the 3 main chords used in many blues, rock/pop songs and how they’re related to each other and work together.
