comment D major in a C major Chord progression?
Think of it like this: C G Am F = I V VIm IV (in the key of C). ... G D Em C = I V VIm IV (in the key of G). The same chord progression in different keys.

Your best investment is to understand harmony and chords, and practice them until they are automatic. Ie. you look at a lead sheet and can instantly voice the chords.
