Hi,

I made a colour map for easy finding same chords in different keys for chord progression and modulation. Just wanted to share with you.

[Linked Image]

Same colour means same chord basically. However the minor key is using the chords found in a natural minor scale. People new to this should realize that with harmonic minor (raise the 7th degree) or the melodic minor (as we learn it where the ascending scale raises the 6th & 7th) we would have some different qualities of chords for some of the degrees.

You can download a pdf from:
here

And to add some common chord progression within the same key:

Progressions with 2 chords
I – IV
I – V

Progressions with 3 chords
I – IV – V
I – IV – V7
I – ii – IV
I – iii – IV
ii – V – I

Progressions with 4 chords
I – IV – I – V
I – IV – I – V7
I – IV – V – I
I – IV – V – IV
I – V – IV – V
I – V – vi – IV
I – vi – V – IV
I – vi – IV – V
I – vi – ii – V
I – vi – ii – V7
I – vi – iii – IV
I – iii – vi – IV
IV – I – IV – V
vi – IV – I – V
I – VI – IV – V
ii – V – I – vi

Progressions with 5 chords
I – vi – ii – IV – V7
I – vi – ii – V7 – ii
I – ii – iii – IV – V
I – ii – vi – V – I
I – vi – ii – V – I
I – iii – vi – V – I

Progressions with 6/7/8 chords
I – IV – I – V7 – IV – I
vii – iii – vi – ii – V – I – IV
I – IV – I – V7 – IV – I – vi – V


Just for fun and experimenting....

Edit1: corrected the colour of C minor v
Edit2: added a quote of keystring's reply

Very helpful indeed. Thank you for the time and effort you have put into this.

For me this has arrived at exactly the right stage of my learning.

Kind regards.

Hi Paprclip,

I made myself one of those last year and it sure is a helpful reminder. Mine wasn't as nice as yours though wink So thanks for sharing!

I bought ChordWheel ( click here ) a little later on, paper version and iPhone app. Highly useful. There are websites that show how to make your own too smile

Terrific work! I'm adding some general cadences to my scale/arpeggio practice and this will be helpful! smile

In the minor keys, isn't the 3rd an augmented chord?

I'm quite familiar with the scales of the minor mode and its forms but very little with the chords other than those minors found in the major (ionian mode) / scale, thus my question.

Thanks

John

The chart shows chords using notes from the natural minor scale, not the harmonic minor scale. In the natural minor scale, III is major, not augmented.

In my previous post I pointed out that the chart shows the chords for the natural minor scale, and that which minor scale needs to be indicated. The (generic) minor scale has three options for the top half, since the 6th and 7th degree can be lower or higher by a half step. So any chord using these notes will be affected.

natural minor: C D Eb F G Ab Bb C
II = dim, III = maj, IV = min, V = min, VI = maj VII = maj

harmonic minor: C D Eb F G Ab B C
II = dim, III = aug, IV = min, V = maj, VI = maj VII = dim

melodic minor (ascending, in how it's taught):
C D Eb F G A B C
II = min, III = aug, IV = maj, V = maj, VI = dim VII = dim

Only the I chord stays the same for all three (I am using the Roman numerals generically).

So I guess I need to make two extra charts to make the minor part work.
