Caveat. The music theory I know I've learned in the last hour.

Lisa in C6-L1 talks about 1-4-5 chord progress. I looked it up and came across this:

So the synopsis of the rest of the lesson was basically this:

Toss the last note in the scale and only use 1 - 6
C - Major Scale

C - D - E - F - G - A

1 - 4 - 5 are major chords
2 - 3 - 6 are minor chords

Major Chords C - F - G
Minor Chords Dm - Em - Am

I looked at the chart and viola - there's that pattern. So I assume for each key I just center over the note of the key I want and there's the progressions? It looks like it.

Key of G
Major Chords G - C - D

Minor Chords Am - Bm - Em

I'm I missing anything? Is this the direction we're going?
Thanks
