This progression is a I-vi-ii-V in the key of F, looking at how to apply the flat-five substitution principle to the vi and v chords. Our first chord is an Fmaj9, double stopping the third and fourth strings with your ring finger (or using a barre if you aren't comfortable doing that). Then we'll move up to an Ab13, coming from a D7(#9). For the ii chord we'll play a G13, then going down a half-step to the G#13 to finish up. This progression is easy to play, but also very effective!
