hey!


Today i was sitting analyzing songs, chord progressions and i'e got the following question:

Which is the right one?

A) C-G-Am-G = 1515 progression
B) C-G-Am-G = 4121 progression

I'm not really sure which one the key of the progression is, whether its C or G.

Any help is appreciated.

well A) would actually be 1565, as Am is the 6th.

as for your question, i think it would depend on what else is played, it could pretty much be either


My mind is going. I can feel it.

Well, technically the chord progression would be I-V-vi-V. If it's a I-IV-V or variationof that. But usually the tonic chord determines the progression. But think about the major orminor scale your usingand that'll give you a clue.

I wasnt sure what to put for Am, isnt Am the minor chord the minor relative of C, just like Em to G?

It is... but your not going to modulate into Am, during a Cmaj progression just for one chord, especially since that chord is built off the sixth degree of the Cmaj scale.
