Lesson #102, Minor Chords II
CLOCKWISE........... I made a verbal mistake at one point in this video. The rotation will be clockwise as you move up the fretboard.
The formula for a minor chord is this......the 1, 3b and the 5. That is the formula for a minor chord. Since we know from previous lessons where the 1,3,5 notes are along the fretboard with the major chords, all we have to do to form minor chords is to flat the 3. Remember to flat a note, all we have to do is go back one half step, or one fret. Waalaa........we now can form all of the minor chords on the five string banjo and also we know why they are minor chords.
Keep it going everyone, if you have any questions, just give us a holler.
