So Do You Truly Understand Why Some Chords Work Together?

Free Guitar Cheat Sheet Reveals
The Most Common Chords in 5 Keys

Only one answer in the quiz is correct, and that is:
b) A, D, and E. But why?

A, D, and E are the first (I), fourth (IV), and fifth (V) chords in the key of A, so they belong together like peas in a pod.

The concept of I, IV, and V is so foundational to the guitar, that it not only tells you which chords work together, but it also tells you how to build a scale, and even which scale to use for solos!
