Hablando de patrones, aquí un estudio que tiene su gracia: «I analyzed the chords of 1300 popular songs for patterns. This is what I found.»

In this article, we’ll look at the statistics gathered from 1300 choruses, verses, etc. of popular songs to discover the answer to a few basic questions. First we’ll look at the relative popularity of different chords based on the frequency that they appear in the chord progressions of popular music. Then we’ll begin to look at the relationship that different chords have with one another. For example, if a chord is found in a song, what can we say about the probability for what the next chord will be that comes after it?

El artículo tiene una segunda parte y se puede complementar con una introducción de teoría musical.
