Help needed

could anyone recommend a progressive track that has nice strings or pads building stabs that made it big in sales ?

Wow alot dude, some of the vintage benz & md stuff made good use of chords, deadmau5 of course, Markus Schulz, Dousk etc lots more, check some them tracks out on beatport ro youtube,  :wink:

Opps, Pryda too!
