9 Basic Steps for the Walkdown in G
When playing chord progressions on the guitar, a common way of transitioning from one chord to another is through the use of “walk downs. A walk down is nothing more than moving from one chord to the next, by way of a “passing” chord in between the two.
The Roman numeral “I” one stands for the first chord in the progression – as determined by the key signature of the song – and the Roman numeral “VI” six stands for the 6th chord in the progression, and this chord is a “minor” chord.
Our discussion today will center on the “I to VIm” walk down in the key of “G”.

Try that and see if it sounds familiar. It’s actually pretty easy, and once you get used to it, you’ll find yourself playing it all the time!
One very common guitae down for guitar players is the “I to VIm” one to six minor movement. The forward slash directly after the “D” indicates the bass note to be added to the chord.
