The Anatomy of a progression

Let’s take a chord progression and look at what information we need in order to be able to maximise our ability with it.

For the purposes of this I shall pick a progression consisting of the following chords

A ¦ f#m9 ¦ Bmin7¦ Dmaj7¦C#min7¦Bmin7¦C#min7¦D6¦¦

The first thing to ascertain is the key that the progression is in.
Do you know how to work out the key of something? If not the next section is just for you.

A = A C# E
