About

The Really Useful Chord Progression Poster makes playing chord progressions and composing music easier and more fun.
-
 
Overview

So you’ve thought of a nice melody for your new song...but how do you write a great chord progression to back it up?

Well, every Major and Minor scale has its own unique ‘set’ of 7 basic chords - chords that sound good together because they’re all made up of notes from the same scale. If you know the scale of your melody, these 7 chords in the corresponding set give you an instant starting point. Move between chords in a set, and move between sets themselves, to create unique chord progressions for your music simply and effectively.



Now this process is even easier with The Really Useful Chord Progression Poster!

The poster displays all 24 Major and Minor chord sets on one easy-to-read poster, giving you everything you need to create interesting chord progressions and jam away to your heart's content. It’s fully illustrated, so you don’t have to be able to read traditional musical notation to use it. But even if you can, it’s a lot more immediate and easy to use. It’s just the right size to fit on your wall in front of your piano or keyboard. And they ship anywhere in the world, making it the perfect gift for yourself or someone you love.



Formats
The poster is available in a range of formats to suit different budgets and applications. We’ve got you (and your wall) covered.

Digital Version - Downloadable, printable PDF version of the poster. This will be sent out immediately after the campaign is over.

Folded – A1 Size. Printed on 170gsm gloss paper. Folded down to A4 which means it is much cheaper to ship. Comes with a FREE Digital copy of the poster as soon as the campaign is over.

Rolled - A1 Size. Printed on 250gsm gloss paper. Comes rolled in a cardboard tube. This means there are no creases in the poster, but it does cost more to ship. Comes with a FREE Digital copy of the poster as soon as the campaign is over.



Funding & Rewards

Funding

We've developed the product, designed the brand, built the website and shot the video. Now, all we need is the money to fund our first print-run, so we can get The Really Useful Chord Progression Poster off the ground and into the hands of those whom it will benefit.

Rewards

We have a simple reward structure, with something for everyone.

1. Our ‘thank you’ reward which is for anyone who wants to donate £1 or more to our campaign.

2. We are offering our ‘Digital’, ‘Folded’ and ‘Rolled’ versions of the poster as rewards.

Download links to the Digital version of the poster will be sent out as soon as you have given us your email address by filling in your Backer Survey.
Assuming you fill in your Backer Survey in time, we will endeavor to ship your physical poster in the first week of December. This means with a bit of luck, your poster will be with you by Christmas!

Conclusion

This poster was designed out of a genuine need to bring certain learning resources together onto 1 easily-accessible format. We are really happy with the end product, and genuinely believe it will help many people learn to play and compose music far more easily. We love that thought, we love this product and we love this business. We hope you do too.


Packaging

Depending on which version of the poster you buy, it will be shipped in different packaging.

Folded – These A1 posters are folded down to A4 size (the same size as a sheet of office paper) and placed inside a mailing envelope. This means the overall package is very small and light, therefore it is much cheaper to ship than any of the other options.

Rolled – This version is the same size as the Folded version (A1), but they come rolled rather than folded (meaning they arrive with you crease-free). They are shipped inside an A1-sized cardboard mailing-tube, which means they are more expensive to ship than the Standard version.

Carriers & Transit Times

All versions (apart from Folded posters shipping to the UK) are sent via tracked and signed services, meaning you'll receive a tracking number for your order once it has been dispatched, and you'll be required to sign for the package once it reaches you.

Risks and challenges

We've developed the product, designed the brand, built the website and shot the video. Now, all we need is the money to fund our first print-run, so we can get The Really Useful Chord Progression Poster off the ground and into the hands of those whom it will benefit. We’ve set a realistic funding target and we see very little risk that we will not be able to fulfill all rewards, but if there are any issues with production, our backers would be the first to know.
