Not as I understand it. In a true A minor key, Am is i, C is III:Swain gave some great advice.Remember that songs in minor keys are notated in the relative major key.For example a tune like Tom Petty's Last Dance With Mary Jane which is in A minor would be notated as 6- or 6m which is the relative minor (6th degree) of C major.
i VII iv i |Am / G / |Dm / Am / |
Looks like the same stuff to me.OK, this is exactly why I asked for easy to understand...i found a site that offers a wheel type card for about 14 bucks that seems to be almost decipherable...but the info does not seeem to match up with what I think I understand y'all to be saying...
Actually isn't the 7 chord a Bm7b5? A Bdim has a G#/Ab in it which isn't part of a C scale.Let's see if this helps:
Basically, there are 7 primary Chords, in any Key. And they are numbered 1 through 7.
1 4 and 5 are Major Chords.
2 3 and 6 are Minor Chords.
7 is a Diminished Chord.
They are built off of the Major Scale Pattern. W W H W W W H
So, in the Key of C:
1=C 2=Dm 3=Em 4=F 5=G 6=Am 7=Bdim.
Does this help?
You're right.Actually isn't the 7 chord a Bm7b5? A Bdim has a G#/Ab in it which isn't part of a C scale.
The VII chord in major is a half diminished chord:Actually isn't the 7 chord a Bm7b5? A Bdim has a G#/Ab in it which isn't part of a C scale.
I agree, the all capital letter system is easier to decipher. Although FM7 and Fm7 are harder to distinguish drunkenly handwritten then FΔ7 and F-7. But easier to type on the computer.With the roman numeral system, there are two ways of showing minors: either in lower case (as above), or keeping all upper case and using "m" or (in jazz shorthand) "-". So (for a major key) -
I ii iii IV V vi viio (o = dim)
I IIm IIIm IV V VIm VIIo
The latter would be clearer when handwriting. (And clearer to use "m" rather than "-", although "-" is common enough in jazz charts.)
Yes it will. For minor harmonies esp. its easiest IMO to use all capital letters, and specify chord qualities and flats. So the harmonized natural minor scale (harmonized means played with chords, don't confuse it harmonic minor) would look like:I am thinking that this will help me learn theory as well as quickly move from one key to another.
