Spread Triads: Minor Chords

NO SCRIPT


Learn and apply these spread chord voicings to real situations for maximum effect.

For each chord, look for its relationship to a minor scale from the root (F). Also, consider practicing the chords in the context of a real chord progression. A great one to use to reinforce these shapes is Fmin to B♭min, as this is actually a common chord progression.
