Chord Progressions Rules

This is my chord progression in my intro in the key of C.

G-F-Am-Em-C-G

It sounds okay when I play it but not sure if I'm following the correct chord progression rules.

Hi David,

I copied this chart from a book. You can check your progression against it if you want. Of course, as they say, if it sounds good that's all that matters.

Chord Leading Chart

These Chords Lead to These Chords
I                Any chord
ii                IV, V, vii⁰
iii                ii, IV, vi
IV                I, iii, V, vii⁰
V                I
vi                ii, IV, V, I
vii⁰                I, iii

This is for major keys.

I hope this helps.

Thank you for the chart! I'm gonna play around and change a few of my chords to see how it sounds. I'll keep the melody the same.
