Lowercase Roman numerals indicate minor chords (ii, iii, vi).

The diminished chord is represented with a lowercase Roman numeral and a degree symbol (vii°).

## Summary

Minor vs. Major: Minor scales have a darker, more melancholic sound compared to major scales. This is because of the flattened 3rd, 6th, and 7th notes compared to a major scale.

Chords: Chords in a scale are built on the notes of that scale. For example, in the C minor scale, the Cm chord is built on the 1st (C), 3rd (Eb), and 5th (G) notes.

Here are the chords and their notes for the minor scales:

1. C Minor Scale:
• Chords: Cm, Ddim, Eb, Fm, Gm, Ab, Bb
• Notes: C, D, Eb, F, G, Ab, Bb
2. D Minor Scale:
• Chords: Dm, Edim, F, Gm, Am, Bb, C
• Notes: D, E, F, G, A, Bb, C
3. E Minor Scale:
• Chords: Em, F#dim, G, Am, Bm, C, D
• Notes: E, F#, G, A, B, C, D
4. F Minor Scale:
• Chords: Fm, Gdim, Ab, Bbm, Cm, Db, Eb
• Notes: F, G, Ab, Bb, C, Db, Eb
5. G Minor Scale:
• Chords: Gm, Adim, Bb, Cm, Dm, Eb, F
• Notes: G, A, Bb, C, D, Eb, F
6. A Minor Scale:
• Chords: Am, Bdim, C, Dm, Em, F, G
• Notes: A, B, C, D, E, F, G
7. B Minor Scale:
• Chords: Bm, C#dim, D, Em, F#m, G, A
• Notes: B, C#, D, E, F#, G, A

These are the basic triad chords for each scale. Remember that each scale has its unique set of chords, and you can build upon these basic triads to create more complex chords and progressions.
