    I have been working a while with Mick Goodrick's Chord Almanac series and combining it with my own work I began with my lessons with Ted Greene.
    I have always loved the sound of open triads. Here is a study in four chord tonic-predominant-dominant progressions utilizing different cycles. There are eight different permutations of the T-Pd-D progression:
    I iii IV V
    I vi IV V
    I iii ii V
    I iii IV vii
    I vi ii V
    I vi IV vii
    I iii ii vii
    I vi ii vii

    I have used Goodrick's voiceleadings from volume 1 and the pdf takes the progressions through all 12 keys. Obviously, the fingerings are merely suggestions and can (should) be altered if your preference dictates.
    This is the first of many that are in the works. Next is utilizing substitutions in the cycles (utilizing Neo-Riemannian and Dmitri Tymoczko geometric modulations).
