Maroon 5 Style i iv VII III Progression

By Eric Hufschmid


Hey guys,

Maroon 5 is a great modern funk/rock band, but they also have a soft side. Today we’ll be looking at a chord progression inspired by Maroon 5 that really helps capture this pop mentality. The i iv VII III is one of our favorite progressions and can really be intense and heavy or even sensitive and beautiful.

Enjoy the progression!


Practice this riff and try to master it. Then, try playing a i iv VII III in these keys:

E minor

B minor

and F# minor


Key of E minor = E minor – A minor – D – G

Key of B minor = B minor – E minor – A – D

Key of F# minor = F# minor – B minor – E – A
