    This is a nice TG intro or Ending in C major. It is 'almost' the cycle of 4ths. I'll explain below under the pic of chord changes.
    I play it twice. The first time I end it with a V chord to get back to C. The second time I end with a IVm6 to Imaj7.

    This was one of the first things Ted showed me in an early lesson.



    Chord diagrams ...

    Essentially the circle of 4ths but with several tri-tone (b5) substitutions (E7#9 subs for a Bb13, etc.). You can also look at them as 1/2 step approaches.
    Regardless of what you call or how you remember it, it sounds cool and is typically 'jazzy' and very TG.
    Enjoy!

    Is the fingering for the V chord in the first ending 3x3443? And is the last I 87955x?

    Yep, you got it! Gaug7

    * On the final Cmaj7 I don't play the E on the 5th string: 8X955X. But you certainly can. On that axe the doubled 3rd in that voicing is a little too out of tune.

    I probably posted it at a 'bad video posting time'. I know there's metrics (can't believe I just used that word) for best viewing rates.

    Nickadermis remarked, "How'd I miss this?" (He's one the players here who like my chord videos)
    Apparently and according to media experts there are better times of the day, week, month and even year to post stuff (on any platform) for the most reach.
    I figure I just posted this one at a statistically bad viewing time.

    Is this in the "Modern Chord Progressions" book?

    No, but I'm sure there is something similar in the 'cycle of 4ths' section. It wouldn't have the b5 substitutions though.

    * "Modern Chord Progressions" is IMO the best Ted Greene tome.
