Im writing a song...but i have trouble finding the right chords....lets say im playing a series of chords that progress a whole-step at a time ( there the same chord by the way...they just sound higher pitched every whole step) ...if that makes sense im not sure lol...how do you know which chords to use next because after the second whole step it doesnt sound right anymore...it isnt progressing evenly if you know what i mean lol...i know this is very vague...try your best please...let me know whats up. thank you.

playing the same chord over and over, no matter where on the neck, is going to sound weird. maybe throw in some different chords?

A lot of pros do that: if they play a wrong note, they'll hit it again to make it look as if it's intentional. It's called "jazz", aparently.

Certain Chords go to certain keys,There's millions of articles and guides on begginer theory if you look.

ok wel you have to keep playing up the scale

take the c mak scale


A B C D E F G A B C D E F G A
6 7 1 2 3 4 5

if you lay the scale like that it will sound lower at the end

C D E F G A B C D E F G
1 2 3 4 5 6 7

but if you play the scale like this it will continue to sound hihger and higher
song stuck in my head today

First of all u should know in what key your vocal range for that song falls , you can say same for the mode also . read some lessons to see what progression sounds good.
