Basic Open ChordsAdditional Chord Structures Below is a chord chart for the 7 most used keys. To create a progression, simply follow a chord progression formula
(I is always the key of the progression). For example, a very popular chord progression formula is I-IV-V, in the key

C/G/Am/F and in G it would be G/D/Em/C.
