We’re going to talk about the F sharp minor chord !
The F sharp minor chord is not a simple chord to create on both piano and guitar at first. It’s for the intermediate leveler. It’s the first chord in a F sharp minor scale.
To build a minor chord you have to think by steps between the notes
By that, I mean that you have to know the steps that connect the notes together. Those steps never fluctuate. You can play them in any order you’re in to create inversions !
Minor chords is formed by the following:
- (Tonic)-Minor 3rd-Perfect Fifth
- or Minor 3rd-Perfect Fifth-(Tonic)
- or Perfect Fifth-(Tonic)-Minor 3rd
Ok, then how do we build the F sharp minor chord by ourselves?
To build any minor chord, you have to keep in mind that the tonic (aka the first note) in this case is F#. You have to start from F# and start building from there.
In F sharp minor we have:
I (F#) – ii (G#) – iii (A) – IV (B) – V (C#) – vi (D) – vii (E)
In the F# minor chord case:
- Tonic – (F#)
- Major Second – (G#)
- Minor Third – (A)
- Perfect Fourth – (B)
- Perfect Fifth – (C#)
- Minor Sixth – (D)
- Minor Seventh – (E)
