Ok I was told yesterday when I said something about playing a Am progression such as "Am C G Am" <----- WRONG. I see that I was indeed wrong and that most likely comes from the key of C or G. Ok so to clear this up, an Aminor progression would come from the minor key of A? May contain something like F#minor, A, E, correct? Also a minor progression of a paticular scale will not contain a minor chord of the root of that scale. Like a C minor scale progression would never contain a Cm and so on with the rest of the minor scales and chord progressions.

To some up that last part a minor progression is formed from the minor scale of whatever your wanting it to be in. WOW I cant spit it out right lol. What I'm trying to say is if you WANT a Cminor progression, it will have to be conducted from the scale of Cminor(which doesn't contain a c minor chord), no other scale.

scale of Cminor(which doesn't contain a c minor chord), THATS WHAT CONFUSES ME!

A Minor = C Major
In a minor key the I chord (chord built from the root) would be minor.
But unless a progression is completely diatonic, there will most likely be variations i.e. modal interchange and secondary dominants. And variation is good since diatonic usually = boring.

But really, I'm not entirely sure if this answers your question seeing as how I'm not too sure what you are asking.

in aeolian(minor)mode... the key of Am, the first chord of the scale is Am.... and C is the 3rd chord in the key and G is the 7th.... so in the key of Am your progression is

i->III->VII->i

the reasoning behind your second part seems to be gibberish

Just read your edit.

Yes C Minor has a C Minor chord in it. The following chords are the diatonic 7th chords in the key of C Minor (also Eb Major):

Cm7, Dm7b5, Ebmaj7, Fm, Gm, Abmaj7, Bb7
or if you only want triads
Cm, D°, Eb, Fm, Gm, Ab, Bb

Isn't that a Am progression within the key of G?

No it's not, it's in A Minor. Unless you purposefully choose the chords to make it sound like C Major, in which case it is. They have the same chords but at different scale values, and they are used differently to create the major/minor tonalities.

I think TS is confused about a major scale's relative minor.
