So tonight I have been writing a song on my acoustic. I have a little opening riff that is from the c minor pentatonic. Now I want to go ahead and make some chord progressions for this song. I don't really know what I am doing theory wise though. Would I stay in the key of C minor or would I write it in E-flat minor?

I plan on using a good amount of minor chords but still some majors. I want it to be a slower played song.

I checked out wikipedia and it says that I can use E♭, F, G, A♭, B♭, C, D, E♭ in E-flat minor. I am really lost. Can anyone help?

Play what sounds good. Don't be limited by what theory says you can do. You can do what you want if it sounds good.


I would do that, but I don't really know where to start. I know a lot of the open chords and then barre chords but I dont have a clue what and where to use them. I want use e-minor, a-minor, c-major and maybe d or g but I don't knjow they are in the right key for that c minor pent riff.

Those chords are not in C minor, but you can just move them down 4 semitones (frets) to make it C minor, F minor, Ab major, Eb major, and Eb major.


So I can only play those 5 chords to sound right?
