Common Chord Progressions Every Beginner Should Know

Beginner
Here are three simple chord progressions that all beginners should know how to play on the piano. I go over some very basic theory explaining how to construct each one, and demonstrate each one in the key of C major.

Number 1:
I – IV – V progression. This is very popular and can be heard in a countless amount of pop, rock and blues songs. In the key of C, the chords would be: C, F, G.

Number 2:
I – V – vi – IV progression. This is the most popular chord progress of all time and appears in hundreds of famous pop songs. In the key of C, the chords would be: C, G, Am, F.

Number 3:
I – vi – ii – V progression. This is another very common chord progression found in many pop, rock and blues songs. In the key of C, the chords would be: C, Am, Dm, G.

I recommend practicing these in a few different keys to help internalize the progressions and also to allow you to play along to even more songs!
