"...play a solid major key progressions and explain why they're solid... "

How about YOU try explaining it? Hah, maybe a little more context? "Solid" definitely isn't a common technical term.

I think solid would just refer to diatonic, like I IV V or iii vi ii V I progressions

God damnit you are everywhere

Ye I figure 'solid' is just colloquial. Something that gives you a definite feel of the tonic.

by solid, and assuming this is a question for a music class, I'd say establish a definite major feel, generally using a IV V I progression, and if your arranging for voicing, use a perfect authentic V7 I cadence at the end.
