The augmented climb chord progression, which is the progression from "Last Night On Earth" by Green Day, starts on the tonic chord and then the top voice of the chord climbs up by semitones until we reach the fourth chord of the key.

And, an extra special thanks goes to Peter Keller, Douglas Lind, Vidad Flowers, Ivan Pang, Waylon Fairbanks, Jon Dye, Austin Russell, Christopher Ryan, Toot & Paul Peijzel, the channel’s Patreon saints! 😇
