What are the most common country music chord progressions?

Each musical genre seems to have common chord progressions. What are the most common for country?


Answer by  Dan21 (81)

C is the most common key, so varying patterns around C, F, G, G7 and Am cover a lot of songs.


Answer by  trench (35)

The most common chords in country music are C, G, F, D and A minor. You can use any variation you would like to mix up the sound (example: G, D, Am, C). Use different rhythms to vary your music.

I-IV-V7 with the occassional II7-V7 substitution. Very often, Minor chords (ii, iii, and vi) are played as Major 7 chords (II7, III7, and VI7) Diminished VII chords are almost NEVER played. They are substituted with what's known a "Mountain 7th Chord" - a M7th chord down 1-step from I.
