Treasure chords and progressions

At first glance, it may seem as if Treasure’s chords are just one small loop throughout. However, at closer inspection, there are small variations that really do help and if you learn these, will set you apart from the rest.

Let’s look at each section to discover Treasure’s secret chord tricks. Following the Bb11 of the intro, these are the verse chords:

||: Abmaj7 Gm7 | Fm7 | Gm Gm7 | Cm Bb :||

The trick here is that Abmaj7 and Cm share the same notes, just with a different bass note. Use a D shape for the Abmaj7 and an Em shape for Cm, same thing!

The GmGm7 is important, it gives the part movement and creates a small difference between the verse and chorus. Gm is an Em shape, and the Gm7 is a Dm shape.

The bridge is almost the same as the verse, just varied at the end with Bb11 chords, like this:

| Abmaj7 Gm7 | Fm7 | Gm Gm7 | Cm Bb |
| Abmaj7 Gm7 | Fm7 | Bb11 | Bb11 |

The chorus is almost the same as the verse, only the Gm has been removed, like this:

||: Abmaj7 Gm7 | Fm7 | Gm7 | Cm Bb :||
| Abmaj7 Gm7 | Fm7 | Bb11 | Bb11 |

The breakdown section is the same as the bridge.
