Learning Chords ?

Know your chord functions ?

Spotting patterns in movements between chords is an amazing skill to learn.

But do do that, you need to think in terms of chord functions.

Each chord's purpose , harmonically within the progression - not just it's name.

The KeySense Cards docs show you exactly how to do this, showing all the main functions.

Then the Key Cards show the chord names, their notes, in all 30 keys.
