I'm trying to learn some music theory. I'm interested in the magic of chord progression, and how little changes can make a dramatic change in the feeling. Anyway, I suppose that a progression moving to the tonic should sound nice and fully "resolevd".
But this progression (Dm C Dm Am C Dm Asus4 Am) sounds nice to me (well, maybe I'm wrong, I'm courious about your opinion too). It is in E key, mode phrygian. The tonic chord 'i' is never used, and it sounds good as well. Am I mistaking the key I'm actually playing?
Edit: As suggested in the reply, this progression is probably in Dm key. I would point to the suggested variant link here. It changes the taste of the progression, that probably sounds more...powerful?
