I'm glad you're making progess HJ! :) Even though I may already know that stuff, it looks Greek to me. What can I say? ;D

Most songs have either IV-I or V-I, or all those three chords. Also the bVII is often used, in a similar way as the IV or V.

I-vi-IV-V is a very common progression: C, Am, F, G or G, Em, C, D.

ii-V-i or the ii-vi-V-I (or II-VI-V-I) is the basis of jazz.
