Chord Progressions

Plug in the appropriate chord using any tonal center. We suggest starting with the key of C Major. For progressions which include flat 7's, take a look at the harmonic map.

When a lower case i is used, this means to play a minor tonic chord. Any of these chords can be fragmented down to a R5. All of these progressions are triadic, yet can be extended to 7, 9, 11, & 13 type chords.

For a given Roman numeral, play either 3 or 4 beats. You can also extend the number of measures (or beats) to any number.

Each line is a different progression.

  • I-IV-V-I
  • I-V-IV-V
  • I-IV-V-IV
  • I-IV

Pick a key and go to it. Also, take a look at harmonic Map for guitar chord progressions. And, as always, make up your own.

  • I-vi-ii-V-I
