I use this chord progression in C major.
C (I) / F (IV) / D (V of V) / G (V)
We're using 2 positions or a small slice of the circle of fifths: mostly C major and briefly G major. Typically any modulation or transposition is a way of using or applying the concept of the circle of fifths.
We can add another position or enlarge the slice we are using by adding a A chord. Now we are including the D major key.
C (I) / A (V of II) / D (V of V) / G (V)
This is also known as cycle five motion. It can help to quickly organize the overall structure of a piece of music in order to know which notes to use for a melody or a lead line.
I find it quite easy (so far!) to navigate, and found the "where do I start" to be very helpful! I'm getting there!!
I LOVE the forum, too. I've never been one to use forums, but the GT forum is full of great people and helpful information at ALL levels! Congrats on a WONDERFUL site!!Good job!
