Emotional Chords: Creating a Satisfying Sadness Vibe

If you are like me, you like sad song.

There's nothing bad with Major keys, happy songs, they can lift your mood, but something about sad song touches me like nothing else can.

And when I think of chord progressions to achieve that effect, there's just one chord progression that comes to mind.

It's actually dead simple!

Just a root chord, followed by a bVI chord in a minor scale.

Example: Em - C

So simple, but yet so effective.

Here's how I use these chords to create this touching kind of mood.
