These are really great.  THanks T-Block!  I have already learned a lot from your helpful posts.

I have a question: When you are practicing these progressions, do you just play the chords on the 1, or do you have a specific rhythm pattern that you play?  could you give some examples?

Sorry, what do you mean by ,"on the 1"? Are you referring to the beat/ metronome?

yeah, i believe he's asking about the timing. do you play at the beginning of each measure?


to answer that, it all depends on the context in how YOU want to use it. those are just progressions. the timing gives them variation. its the same reason why u can have a song with the same chords for the chorus, verse, and vamp and they all feel different. same reason why u can have like a thousand songs with the same progressions but they're distinctly different songs. Timing adds so much variety. I suggest pick a group, practice the heck out of it and do it during a song, but in different timings. it'll feel like u did something entirely different each time if you vary the rhythm  enough.
For my God... let "Golden Axe" prevail.

Floaded pretty much answered it. I just pick a rhythm and go for it. The idea is to get used to the sound of these progressions. Memorize the chord qualities, bass movements, etc. and experiment with different uses for them.
