In this lesson we will learn about the minor chord. Like the major chord it is built by playing the first, third and fifth notes of the corresponding scale. Again, once you learn the formula you can apply it to all minor chords (in all keys)!

The minor chord formula is:

1st - 1 and a half steps to - minor 3rd - 2 whole steps to - 5th
