I’ve been trying to find out what the Spanish Chord Progression “Am – G – Dm – E” is, in order to write it the way I have seen other Progressions written – i.e. like the earlier Progression: G – Em – C – D is written as I-vi-IV-V.
First problem is that I do not know how to determine the key. Is it in the key of Am? Or in G? Or E? Nothing makes sense when I try to look at it on the Circle of Fifths to find something that has Am, G, Dm and E together. The same when I look at some lists I’ve gathered on common Chord Progressions.
I am confused about minor keys – and suspect that some uncommon modes (which I don’t really understand yet) may be in play, especially since the name “Spanish” may imply something off the normal chord track.
Thanks for the help, DaveJay
