Chord Progressions - Chord Stream

Next page:
Previous page: Chord Progressions - A Taste of Onion Next page: Chord Progressions - Progressions with secondary dominants

A "chord stream" is characterized by sliding, step wise root movement from chord to chord. This is a technique is most closely associated with either early twentieth century Impressionism or Jazz and it happens to break one of the standard old-fashioned rules against using parallel octaves and fifths between chords. Aesthetically, it suggests a languid sensuality. (This is taken from Alan W Pollack's comments to P.S. I Love You) We will stick to some more basic application of this harmonization. I think of it as climbing the harmonized scale, and this was the name I had given to such progressions until I learned the term "chord stream".
