  1. Hello, my name is Logan Nadeau and I want to learn the I-IV-V-vi progression for piano.

    I am confused by this step and I would like to know more about it and how to learn this progression.

    I already know and do a lot of these steps so I would really want to know how this progression works.

    I am self taught but I know I would not mind the help of a musician.

  4. Thanks for the article it helps a lot. If I wrote a song, where exactly will I have to play it and get it produced by someone?

  5. Hi, this short article is very creative. One small question just for understanding the topic: after you put the chord progressions on staff paper, then what notes would you use to match each of the chords as seen in a typical sheet music (i.e. each chord is supposed to go with/support a note, right? In other words, the chords are played by left hand, what notes do your right hand play?).
