One of the most well-know chord progressions in popular music of the 19th century and later is the 12-bar blues.

The 5th measure is the Subdominant (iv chord), or the chord based on the fourth step of the Tonic scale.

 Root (chord) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In music the root (basse fondamentale) of a chord is the note or pitch upon which that chord is perceived or labelled as being built or hierarchically centered upon.
Conventionally, the name of the note which is the root is used to denote the chord, thus a major chord built on C is a C Major chord.
This is in contrast to an older pre-tonal conception of chords as sonorities wherein root position or first inversion triads are simply considered alternative and fairly equivalent ways of "filling in" the consonance between octaves, C (E G) C or C (F A) C. See: Figured bass.

 Chords Leading -- 1 Feb 2002   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The most important chord in any key is the tonic (the ‘I’, or Roman numeral one) chord (in the key of C, it’s C).
So in the key of C, the ii chord is Dm.) This is because, in theory, just as the dominant moves to the tonic, the second (which is the dominant of the dominant) moves toward the dominant.
In A, the progression is again V - IV - I. So in both cases, a progression that fits within one key (D in the 1st case, A in the 2nd), is used in the "adjacent" key (A in the 1st case, E in the 2nd).

That is, the first four bars are the I chord, the next two the IV chord, the next two the I chord again, and so on.
An example of complicated progression that can be created this way is the "Coltrane Changes", where the "I" chords move by Major 3rd intervals.
One-chord "structures" are uncommon, but they do exist.

The next chord in the progression would be A5, which is there because of the string part and bass holding the "D".
The last chord which is the A is there because the only note that is played is the A. Bass and strings are both playing A, and the only exception is the D just before beginning the melody again.
The chords are all "5" chords and the roots are based on the key your using.

For this example, we have used the Em G A progression and the A chord is not diatonic to the key of C major.
The notes in the Am chord are, A C and E. The notes in the A chord are A C# and E. So the A note or root note in the A chord is diatonic.

This circle progression descends an augmented fourth from the “Fmaj7” to the “Bm7sus” chord to break the cycle and end on the “E” (dominant) chord.
