Hi everyone, I'm looking for some classical sounding progressions and characteristics that would make something sound classical. I know they used diminished chords a lot and stuff, but how are they used? If someone could even point me to a lesson that would be awesome !

The only progression I know that sounds classical is just playing 4ths.. (in Am, Am - Dm - GM - CM - etc.)

Thanks a lot !

The chords to Canon in D are I-V-vi-iii-IV-I-IV-V-I. But I'm pretty sure most progressions in classical music are just normal progressions. Using Dominant 7ths could help, and secondary dominants.
