Creating Music with Chord Progressions
A chord progression is a group of chords that you use to create music. Some chord progressions just sound better than others, so it pays to experiment. The following table, which shows commonly used major-key chords and the other chords they often lead to, can help you in deciding which chords will come next in your compositions.
|I||Can appear anywhere and lead anywhere|
|ii||I, V, or vii° chords|
|iii||I, IV, or vi chords|
|IV||I, ii, V, or vii° chords|
|V||I, vi chords|
|vi||I, ii, iii, IV, or V chords|
