I need some help. I have been trying to write songs for awhile. I can make lyrics okay, and my lead riffs arn't to bad either, but I need to know some good minor chord progressions I could use for this song I am writing now.

My minor, you mean sad right?

Try a progression over the aeolian mode:
i ii° bIII iv v bVI bVII

For example chords, ill use the key of C:

C Minor
D Diminished
Eb Major
F Minor
G Minor
Ab Major
Bb Major

if he's a beginner, why start him on the aeolian mode? you need to understand the basics before you can understand the complex stuff

how about

Am C Em A
Am C G Em
Am F C G
D A Bm F#m
Am G F Em

Where does it say hes a beginner???
He asked for a minor chord progression.
The Aeolian mode is the minor scale, it has a sad feel to it. I gave him some chords to mess around with.

I gave him hard(ish) stuff and some simple stuff.

I know what the aeolian mode is. I have been taking guitar theory for years and know what it is. Thanks for the prog. though
