Another little play around with synthesizers. This one is a cliche progression that could be used as background ambience for a sorrowful scene. I will never have a use for it, so perhaps someone else will.

It loops once and I have left in the ending reverb so you can loop it yourself without any major reverb clipping. It is at roughly 80BPM and the progression is as follows (in case you wish to add more on top of it):

A minor (ACE)
C major 7 (CEGB)
F major 7 (FACE)
F major add 6 (FACD)
A minor (ACE)
E minor add 6 (EGBC)
F major 7 (FACE)
D minor 9 add 13 (DFACEB)
