I'm trying to learn all chords in a given major key. I've been arpeggiating the chords in linear order (I,ii,iii,IV,V,vi,viio) but it's sounds a bit bland so I'm looking to try different ways to make it sound more like a song. Maybe someone knows a good chord progression that encompasses all 7 chords, or maybe some other way that has helped you master all diatonic chords in a major key yet have it sound musical.

    Have you met my friend Johann Sebastian Bach and his Well Tempered Clavier? – Todd Wilcox Apr 24 '18 at 18:24

    You can ask in chat and we can point you in the right direction, but the main site is not for finding songs or progressions that fit a certain description. – Dom Apr 24 '18 at 18:26

    It was a question about how to practice. And it involved theory. Isn't that what this site is all about? – foreyez Apr 25 '18 at 0:03

    Voted to reopen - this question is not looking for specific chord progressions of songs, etc. It is asking for a general approach to practicing using certain types of chord progressions. IMO it's a good question and quite appropriate for the site. – Stinkfoot Apr 25 '18 at 14:49

    @Dom - I respectfully disagree and IMO the meaning of "musical" here is clear enough - any sort of structure that's not just arpeggiating the chords in linear order. – Stinkfoot Apr 25 '18 at 15:55
