The V-I-IV Progression


Although not used as often as the above combinations, the V-I-IV progression was used to begin the chorus of

Candle In The Wind (1997).

Chord Substitution:

George Benson's Bridge to This Masquerade takes the V-I-IV Progression and substitutes a "v7" chord for the "V" chord, a "I7b9" chord for the "I" chord, and a IVmaj7" chord for the "IV" chord, creating the jazz progression below.
