Circle Progressions

"The Circle of Fifths [above] shows the most logical, natural movement of one chord to another in Western music. You can start with any chord on the wheel, move in any direction, and use as much or as little as you like to produce new progressions....The possible progression combinations that can be created using the Circle of Fifths are almost endless." (Excerpt from Money Chords - A Songwriter's Sourcebook of Popular Chord Progressions © 2000 by Richard J. Scott) A great example of a circle progression is shown below.
