This is another popular movement in rock. Some popular songs that use this form are “Smoke on the Water” by Deep Purple, and “Cheap Sunglasses” by ZZ Top. Similar to the I-bVII-IV, this progression can be easily transposed up and down the guitar neck, adapting easily to any key you wish.

This awesome sounding progression is seen in tons of the best rock songs. What’s great is that you can learn the I-bVII-IV in open position chords, or you can transpose it and move it around the neck very easily!
