The Sensitive Female Chord Progression

Marc Hirsch, co-editor of NPR's fantastic Monkey See pop-culture blog, has a new blog about the 6-4-1-5 chord progression, or "Sensitive Female Chord Progression," which, once you know what to look for, is maddeningly prevalent in popular music, particularly the sort of music that plays at the Ginger Bar on 5th Avenue in Brooklyn - IF YOU CATCH MY DRIFT - but also in Boston and Neutral Milk Hotel and just an incredible number of love songs. Check it out.
