 Chord progression - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A chord change is a movement from one chord to another and may be thought of as either the most basic chord progression or as a portion of longer chord progressions which involve more than two chords (see shift of level).
The most common chord progressions in Western classical and pop music are based on the first, fourth, and fifth scale degrees (tonic, subdominant and dominant); see three chord song, eight bar blues, and twelve bar blues.
The chord based on the second scale degree is used in the most common chord progression in Jazz, ii-V-I. Chord progressions are usually associated with a scale and the notes of each chord are usually taken from that scale.

 Chord (music)
Music is said to be chord-based when the melody is determined by the chords and not by melodic concerns such as modal frames.
Chords are also distinguished and notated by the scale degree, pitch, or note of their root and bass, although there are many different conventions for indicating the quality of the chord, and the inversion of the chord (determined by which note of the chord serves as the bass note); see Inverted Triads below).
Each note has a function within the chord: the note the chord is built on is called the root of the chord, the second note (a third above the root) is called the third of the chord, and the third note (a third above the second note) is called the fifth of the chord.

The name major for a chord, abbreviated capital M or "maj" means that the chord is made up of the first, third and fifth notes of the scale.
For example, a C major chord again would be notes: C, E, and G. "C sus" would be C, F, and G. In this second case, note that we eliminated "E' which was the third note of the scale, but added "F" which is the 4th note of the scale.
A chord "C sus 2" would be C, D and G instead of the normal C major chord C, E, and G. In the "sus 2" case, "E" the third note of the scale disappears and is replaced by "D" the second note of the scale.

This chord is what I call a color chordand one you can use to add flavor to the natural major chord.
Starting at the octave of the open chord (12th fret) use your thumb to hold down the top four stringsand you have a D chord with the bottom strings acting as the suspension.
This configuration can be played on several frets creating a series of changing chord as you descend the neck of the guitar while maintaining the D as the suspended sound.

 Chord Naming
Note that the chords change in a regular pattern, such as once per measure or every two beats (this is called harmonic rhythm), but the voicings and inversions can vary arbitrarily throughout the period of the chord as the performers desire.
The true augmented chord is a very colourful chord which is not often used.
In many forms of music, the only chord types ever used are triads (i.e., the first three degrees of a chord), so it is possible to specify nothing more than major or minor.

 Chord structure in medieval music
The use of chords, or what we might call "vertical structure" to distinguish it from the "horizontal structure" defined principally by melody, is a topic which is both crucial for understanding the music itself and illustrative of general conclusions about polyphonic music.
Nonetheless, it is generally not possible to assign modality to polyphonic music of this period, unless it is notionally assigned based on that of the lowest voice, a common technique.
This article provides a fine orientation to the general context in which discussions on chord structure in medieval music will take place, illustrating examples from what is perhaps the most dynamic and exciting period in the history of the development of polyphony.

 rpsoft 2000 music chord theory
We had said that a major chord was made up of the first, third and fifth notes of the scale, C, E and G. A minor is close, but it “flats” the third.
So a C minor chord would be: C, Eb, G. Note that we could have shown this also as: C, D#,G since D# and Eb again are the same note.
So a C major chord again is C, E, and G, which are the first, third and fifth notes of the scale.

 Music Theory: Harmony: Chord Progressions
A chord progression is the series of chords used to harmonize a composition.
Normally, we look at chord progressions in units that correspond to musical sections such as those we previously referred to as stanzas - the complete statement and development of a single musical idea.
Thus when you see a diminished chord in a progression, any of the other related diminished chords may be just as appropriate.

Of course, there's no right or wrong in music, but VII is not the final chord of the 12 Bar Blues (as suggested) though it is (as shown) a valid substitution (particularly if you have a bass player to hold the B while you wander off into your diminisheds, etc.)

However, a triad may instead be diminished or augmented, or may contain dissonant elements such as a seventh.
It is, however, an essential property of a chord that it be conceived as an entity, that its constituent notes “fuse” rather than merely coincide in time.
