(3.10)  Minor Chords

As with major chords, there is a series of chord types formed by the harmonic extension of the minor triad.

These are very similar to their major counterparts, except that they contain the flat third degree instead of the third.

Other minor chord types are formed from the minor triad using other combinations of degrees.
