examples are I VI II V (first chord being the first, say Cmaj, next the 6th, say Amin, II is Dmin and V Gdom in this example..)

another one is simply I V or I VII VI V or just about all you can think of

darksauce, what you have posted is the chords in any major key. A better way of writing it is:

I ii iii IV V vi viio I

The roman numerals represent the scale degree that the chord is built off and upper case means Major, lower case means minor, and o means diminished. In C major (for simplicity) the chords you could use are C Dm Em F G Am Bdim.
Using these chords you can make a chord progression, such as the good ol' I IV V. In C that is C F G.

I think you should definately start learning some scales (especially the major scale) and start learning all of the notes on the fretboard.

thanx 4 da feedback. ive alredy learnt da minor and major pentatonic and the major scale. so i kinda get wat chord progression is, just a particular way of chords goin on to the next chord? so if i take G, I IV V would b Gmaj, C#maj/Dbmaj, Dmaj/D7?

Not quite, the notes in G are G A B C D E F#, therefore C is the IV. Apart from that you're right!

ii V I is a standard jazz progression.

I I I I
IV IV I I
V IV I V
