Chords Within a Key

This lesson introduces us to the concept of triads within a key. Here we see that the triads based on notes contained within the key are numbered and have a distinct relationship.

Working in the key of C (which gives us all white notes) we find that there are 7 distinct chords -- 3 major (C, F and G), 3 minor (Dm, Em and Am) and 1 diminished (Bdim).

The video also introduces the idea of chord progressions. Make sure you listen to the tip on humming the baseline to determine the key and chord progression when learning a new song.
