This time you’ll find out how to play a minor triad (or minor chord), starting with C minor. In minor triads the middle note is a semitone lower than in a major chord.
You’ll also find out how to count in semitones to make a minor chord on any note:
- The minor 3rd is 3 semitones above the root note.
- The high note is 4 semitones above the middle one.
Andy has shown you how to play C minor and G minor. See if you can use this counting in semitones to find other minor chords with different root notes.
