In one of my piano lessons(this is the link to the lesson where I talked about minor chords), I revealed a formula that you can use to derive your minor chords. Unfortunately most of us don't want to take our time to read through. A lot of people want to know more about minor chords of certain notes so they can use it to play praises and worship.

So I'm going to shed more light on how to
adding minor chords to your praise and worship skills
get your minor chords of each notes using a simple formula. Click here to get the parameters to the formula

The formula to get minor chords is

Root + minor third + perfect fifth (get the meaning of minor third and perfect fifth here)

The root is the note in which  we are looking for the chord

at the same time: note that a minor third is three semitones from the root note
                            and that a perfect fifth is seven semitones from the root note.


C  C#  D  D#  E  F  F#  G  G#  A  A#  B  C  C#  D  D#  E  F  F#  G  G#  A  A#  B  C
d   de   r    re   m f   fe   s    ze   l    taw t    d  de   r    re   m f   fe   s    ze   l    taw t    d

We can continue on and on like that....
Now let us derive the chords from the formula:

let us find the chord minor Chord of C, this means that C is the root.

So from the formula

Root + minor third + perfect fifth

the root is C

recall that minor third is three semitones from the root note; so if we count three semitones from C, we have D#

recall that perfect fifth is seven semitones from the root note; so if we count seven semitones from the root note we have G

Therefore, the minor chord for C or doh is C D# G, which is equivalent to D re s

I hope you understand.

Now use this same principle to find the minor chord of D, E,F,G,A,B i.e r m f s l t d

Check your answers below if it is correct:

C  D#  G          d re s        doh minor chord
D  F  A             r f l           reh minor chord
E  G  B            m s t         mi minor chord
F  G#  C          f ze d        fah minor chord
G  A#  D         s taw r       soh minor chord
A  C  E           l d m          lah minor chord
B  D  F#         t r fe           ti minor chord
C  D#  G        d re s          doh minor chord

So now, get back to practice and try to apply them to your worship and praise songs. God bless you.
