Play a couple of random chords after each other.

If you want to get a nice sounding chord progression just play chords that sound nice after each other.

If you want to know WHY some chords sound nice after each other, you should learn about key, resolution, building tension, scales etc.

This. To add to that, www.musictheory.net will help but you have to nail each lesson before moving on to the next, otherwise it'll be confusing.
There's a good chance that what I've written above is useless and if you take any of the advice it's your own fault.

You might have to start on an earlier lesson than this, but this is the first part of the direct answer to your question.

How do you make a chord progression?



Learn what they are. Learn to hear them in music. the links above will lead you in the right direction. I would also highly recommend lessons (or a class) and a theory book.


Don't make them until you've done this. Or if you don't understand them......


you can still get familiar with the sounds with enough experience playing and memorizing songs. If you have that kind of experience, just listen and choose chords that sound appropriate for what you're expressing. They'll likely be the same or similar to the ones you'd have learned about in a theory book, you just won't have the fancy words to attach to them.

I already know scales and theory and keys and all that stuff and even looked at musictheory.net. But, I have trouble finding nice progressions. Is there a chart anybody knows of that shows what chord leads to another? I'm currently working on Hungarian Minor (1 2 3b 4# 5 6b 7 1) how do I find a chord progression that works well and really makes a Hungarian Minor feel?

Listen to Focus, and in particular the dutch guitarist Jan Akkerman. He uses that scale.... A LOT.

No, unfortunately, you don't. That's like claiming to know the alphabet and asking how to draw the letter M. Re-examine what you say you know - I have a feeling that one on one it would take 5 seconds to find enough holes in your "knowledge" to drain spaghetti.

Not trying to be mean, but I am being direct. You're as lost as they come. Start over at learning, understanding and being able to apply the basics of music.

Best,

Play around with a few chords and put them into a sequence.

If you're stuck on creating one, work out them chords in a key and then play around with those. Tonic and dominant is a good starting point.
