I have I-vi-IV-V repeated three times (I think it's called the 50s progression) plus turnaround I-vi-ii-I, and want a similar progression repeating afterwards but that subjectively feels at a higher pitch.
I tried V-iii-vi-ii and V-iii-I-ii, with turnaround V-IV-iii-ii, but I'd like to know what would be the most commonly used progression for this propose.
The chords I'm currently using are:
C-Am/E-F-G repeats three times plus turnaround C-Am/E-Dm-C.
Then G-Em-Am7-Dsus2 or G-Em-C6-Dsus2 three times with turnaround G-F-Em-Dm.
