At the age of 53 I'm new to music theory and in particular to chord progressions. While playing around with the piano, I've noticed that I like the sound of this progression
Cm Gm AM Dm
I have tried transposing it to other keys and sometimes switch to them for fun.
Am I playing in Cm? If so, would it be correct to use this notation to describe the progression?
i v VI ii
What I don't understand is what key I am playing in. To complicate matters sometimes I change the last chord in the progression to a major (so Dm becomes DM).
By identifying the key then I feel I should be able to improvise with my right hand.
(My confusion: if it is Cm, then the sharps and flats are different, but it almost "feels" that it's in Dm because it seems to resolve to Dm. But again the C blues scale seems to work on the right hand...!)
