Continuing on with learning the chords we will need to play our Beginner Jazz in C piece.

Let's add a D minor chord next. This is also in root position (D, F, A). Next we add the "five chord" (V) in the key of C major, the G major chord (G, B, D). This sets us up to do the stereotypical jazz chord progression, ii, V, I.

C major is the one chord (I), D minor is the two chord (ii) & G major is the five chord (V), then we will return to the C major as a I chord. The C-sharp diminished chord is a vii diminished of ii. It is a way of getting effectively from the C major to the D minor.
