Triads in Harmonic Minor

Triads in Harmonic Minor Scale

This is a continuation of the harmonic minor scale blog The Harmonic Minor Scale

We covered the harmonic minor scale in the key of C harmonic minor.
Let’s cover the triads in the key of A harmonic minor this week.
Learning what the chords are in different scales, is a fun way to come up with cool-sounding chord progressions, with new sounds you otherwise never would have discovered.

The notes of the A harmonic minor scale are: A B C D E F G# A

This scale gives you the following triads:

Am Bdim Caug Dm E F G#dim

Here are the chord shapes.

Transposing this to the key of C, you get:

Cm Ddim Ebaug Fm G Ab Bdim


Hit me up anytime at if you have any questions, or if you would like to book a lesson.

These free lessons are cool, but you will never experience the progress, joy, and results that my students experience in lessons when you’re learning by yourself from blogs and videos.

That is why people take lessons: way better results and progress, much more complete information, exposed to way more creative ideas than you can get from a blog or YouTube video.
There is only so much that self-study can accomplish.

If you want to see amazing results and progress in your guitar playing, buy your first lesson here and get started ASAP.
