Re: Major Key Chord Progressions Chart

This is really useful. I've had a major frustration this week when I had the first 3 chords of a progression down, could 'hear' the fourth chord in my head, but couldn't find it on the keyboard. I'm going to see if what I'm looking for is a common progression.

Re: Major Key Chord Progressions Chart

The minor chord progression table on the same page is really useful too. I don't tend to write in major:-)

Re: Major Key Chord Progressions Chart

Yes. Quite useful. This is basically just the "three-pie-slices-chart chords" of the good old circle of fifths (don't know the english word for it) - where you take the three majors (tonic, dominant and subdominant) and its relative minors.

For C that will be G and F, and relative Dm, Am, Em. Then you can rotate these 3/6 chords any way you want:

Re: Major Key Chord Progressions Chart

This is indeed useful. Minor chords are usually written in lower case, so in this chart Am = vi instead of VI. Packs more understanding in. Thanks for sharing!

Re: Major Key Chord Progressions Chart

hello

Thanks for the links I'm trying the major easiest chords un my DAW to see how it sounds

I've come accross this hook theory website. Is it worth purchasing it if I have no knowledge of chords and melodies?

No, because all that stuff is out there for free.
