Always tells us something.
Together the 3 modes or forms create a large family of chords, modes, and sounds that we call the minor key. We follow our ear when writing music in minor keys. Interesting things can happen when we mix. We don't absolutely have to track where each of these chord types come from [Natural, Harmonic, Melodic], though this is good mind exercise.
Total Triad Production
- i = Am
- iio= Bo
- ii = Bm
- III [can also be called ♭III when paralleled to key of A Major] = C
- III+ = C+ (C Augmented) - [can also be called ♭III+ when paralleled to key A Major]
- iv = Dm
- IV = D
- v = Em
- V = E
- VI [can also be called ♭VI when paralleled to key of A Major] = F
- vio = F♯o
- VII [can also be called ♭VII when paralleled to key of A Major] = G
- viio = G♯dim (G♯o)
Above are just the triads. The families' qualities expand with 7ths and extended chords. We did include some m7♭5 type fingerings, above, to make them easier to play within the chord scales.
