Minor Triads Exercise

Let’s get down minor triads!

In the previous post “Major Scale Exercise” I gave you an exercise for understanding major triads.

Now let’s do the same for minor triads!

Pick out the root, 3rd, and 5th from the minor scale to get the corresponding minor chord

CHORD: D minor

 

ANSWER: D F A

D minor chord = D F A

Let’s continue..

CHORD: A minor

 

ANSWER: A C E

So an A minor chord is made up of the notes A C and E

Again, you are pulling out the 1st, 3rd and 5th notes from the minor scale (known as a minor triad) to determine what notes the given chord consists of.

CHORD: E minor

ANSWER: E G B

The chord of E minor = E G B

And let’s do one more

CHORD: B minor

ANSWER: B D F#

The B minor chord only has the notes B D and F#
