Rock (I-IV-V) Progressions
The I-IV-V Progression
Chord Substitutions: (Continued)
The "C#m-A-B-C#m" progression is a slight variation on the "C#m-A-B" progression. This variation was used to create the Eye Of The Tiger verse (1982) and the Im So Excited chorus (1984).
Alice Cooper's I'm Eighteen takes the I-IV-V Rock Progression and substitutes a "vi" chord for the typical "I" chord, creating the chord progression below. As the "C#m" and "E" chords share the "E" and "G#" notes, they can be readily substituted for each other.
