    Serious old-brain syndrome here.

    But I did notice the lower case. So the progression in C would be C  G  e minor  F?

    I'd definitely get the stink-eye!

      It's one of the first times we ever talked. I was trying to get you to delve into minor keys after you told me that you played everything in major keys.  I was trying to convince you that minor chords would fit into much of your music. You might be surprised about getting that stinkeye. Talk to him about it, see what he thinks.

      In C progression the vi would be Am. In G it would be Em.

          love it when you do. It'll add a whole new dimension to your music. Trust me, if I can get it, it'll be a piece of cake for you. Just try tossing in one of the minors when you're fooling around some time. Here's a starting place. Start with the I chord, C in this instance, then switch to any other chord listed,(since the I chord can lead to any other) then follow that with any chord in the chart below that your previous chord leads to as stated in the chart. Once you figure that out, the  same pattern will work in any key. Just try it.

          Chord in C Major Scale              Leads to
          I     C                                     Can lead anywhere
          ii     Dm                                     V or vii° chords
          iii     Em                                     IV or vi chords
          IV     F                                     ii, V, or vii° chords
          V     G                                     vi chords
          vi     Am                                     ii, iii, IV, or V chords
          vii°     B°                                     I chord
