Guitar Chord Theory - Diminished Triads
Diminished triads are made up of the following notes of the major scale 1st, flattened 3rd, and flattened 5th.
In the scale of C major C D E F G A B this would equal C (1st), Eb (3rd flattened b=flattened), and Gb (5th flattened)
Lets try another exercise...
In the key of G major name the notes of a G diminished triad.
Key of G major = G A B C D E F#
G minor triad = G(1st), Bb(3rd b), and Db(5th b)
Very good! Now here's some review...
Major = 1,3,5
Minor = 1,3b,5
Diminished = 1,3b,5b
