Music Theory/Chord Structures. A chord structure, also called a chord progression or harmonic progression, helps indicate where the melody should go.
The purpose of chord structures It can be argued that many forms of music are organic, while imposing a rigid "structure" can be hampering. This is a legitimate concern. However, consider that rigid chord structures occur most often in improvisational music (especially jazz), which is usually not rigid in itself. Furthermore, many composers do not consider chord structures much when composing, perhaps trying various things out and just going with what works, or maybe simply having an intuitive understanding of the structures involved.
Music Theory/Finding the Key and Mode of a Piece. Identifying keys Finding the proper key is a matter of finding the I note, then finding what mode the notes seem to follow.
This can be easy or difficult, depending on the piece of music. Some music does not really follow a mode at all, but non-modal key signatures are frowned upon.
