Please help me understand this chord progression
Hi all,

I am trying to understand the chord progression in this song (Manoa, Before Sunrise), from about 2:30 to 2:50:

I think the chords are [code]Dm, Am, G, Dm[/code]
But I am not sure of the best way to understand this progression.

Would it be [code]i-v-IV-i[/code] in D minor?

Or would it be [code]ii-vi-V-ii[/code] in C major (with the I chord missing)?

Or something else?

I'm a beginner—please keep it simple.
