Default Will I Infringe On Any Copyright For This?

Ok, so my favorite musician of all time is Jon Bellion. A lot of the music I make is influenced by him. Recently I've been playing around with four chords that I really like. They are, F# G# A#m and C#. The song is at 100bpm. The problem is, I played them back in the rhythm I wanted. It was the same rhythm as Jon Bellion's "All Time Low". His chords he uses are F G Am and Em (also C as the last chord sometimes) at 90bpm. I just want to know if I used the same rhythm and the chords I have will I infringe on his copyright? I can post links comparing the two songs if anyone would like. It's only the chords and the progression that I'm worried about. The melody is completely different.

wow. what a forum this is. I ask a simple question and get that type of response. I'm new to the music industry. I don't know a lot of what I can and cannot do. Sorry for asking a dumb question then.

You can't claim ownership of cords on a fret board...
