Amazed is actually kind of amazing

Recommended Posts

First time posting over here.


Recently occurred to me what's going on in Amazed by Lonestar (a cheesy 90s country classic to be sure): they just move the 1-5-6-4 around to different key centres (other than the guitar lead bridge section). Cool little trick that gets some interesting modal borrowing/deceptive changes in there and provides nice movement, I find. Credit to the songwriters for that one. :thu:

Thank you...thank you....thank you



I remember reading somebody"s rant a few months ago, about the overuse of that progression. I recalled learning a song for a wedding gig that used that progression in three different keys. It was prolly around 2012. I could not, for the life of me, recall the title or the artist . It bugged the crap outta me for a long time. Now I know.


And yes - I thought it was some clever songwriting.

Professional musician = great source of poverty.
