Hey guys I just came up with new chord progression. I realizied that the subdominant like to move away from the tonic. Im not a professional but still striving to get there you guys. Here it is check it out:
Of course you know about:
Tonic > Subdominant > Dominant > Tonic
But I tried this new one I worked out and this one so far is my favorite
Tonic > Dominant > Tonic > Subdominant > Tonic
I tried working
Tonic > Subdominant > Tonic > Dominant > Tonic
But once I got subdominant I felt a strong push to move to dominant. Which I dont know why? I guess that just wasnt the way the song I was creating did not want to go that route it felt a urge to go dominant which where I came up with Tonic, Subdominant, Dominant. Any other new ones I should be aware of? and I'll post them Good luck!
Those of you who are wondering what do I mean by
tonic > dominant > tonic > subdominant > tonic
Examples: In the of key C
I really like this one
tonic > tonic > subdominant > dominant
Example: In the key of C
My oh my you guys I been loaded up on chord progression. I finally understand the theory behind what I'm doing. All in the key of C
Tonic > Tonic > Subdominant > Tonic > Dominant
Cmajor - E minor - Fmajor - Cmajor - Gmajor
Tonic > Tonic > Subdominant > Dominant
Cmajor - Aminor - Fmajor - Gmajor
Tonic > Dominant > Tonic > Subdominant
Cmajor - Gmajor - Aminor - Fmajor
Tonic > Tonic > Subdominant > Tonic
Cmajor - Emin - Fmajor - Cmajor
Tonic > Tonic > Dominant > Tonic
Cmajor - Aminor - Gmajor - Cmajor
Tonic > Tonic > Dominant > Subdominant > Tonic
Cmaj - Aminor - Gmajor - Fmajor - Cmajor
Good luck you guys!
Have you found www.musictheory.net/lessons/57 then click the right hand bottom of the screen arrow for a chart of what chords like to do. If we let them do what they like it results in good things.
Check out the chart for minor chord progressions.
I think you will like it.

You need to explain the terms you're using, to avoid confusion.

Secondly - and this is the sense in which you're using the 3 main terms - all the chords in a key fall into just three functions.
Tonic = I, iii, vi
Subdominant = IV, ii
Dominant = V, vii
The two subdominant function chords can substitute for one another (do the same job), as can the dominant function chords.
But it doesn't quite work that way with the tonic function chords. iii and vi can usually sub for I, but "I" can't always sub for iii or vi.
In any case, your sequences would be much clearer if you wrote them in roman numerals.
It's good to be able hear how different chords can work with the same function - eg, that C-Em-F-G is really just a variant of C-C-F-G. But IMO that needs pointing out.
