40 hits using the same chords: C G Am Em. Maybe there is a logical explanation for this pattern.

Haha, yes that's true :) Only 4 chords are enough. Thanks for sharing Adelaide!

Springsteen made a career from it!

It's how you play them that's the trick.

Thanks for the link Adelaide.

BTW, the chord pattern in this video is C G Am F (not Em)

And yes, some chord patterns are "standards" which sound good to our ears (at least ears used to listen to western music).

I used to play lots of jazz music, and two chord progressions are very well known by jazz musicians. That's what we call 2-5-1 and 6-2-5-1. I guess such patterns also exist for pop music or other genres.

For more info, you can google "2 5 1 chord progression" or "6 2 5 1 chord progression".

Four chords, and forty hits?
Not bad, but the classic Twelve bar blues progression only needs three chords and there are literally thousands of songs based on that simple foundation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twelve-bar_blues

Really cute video BTW, thanks for posting!

I forgot to tell that I thought of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" when the guy played the chords.
