5-13 Minor Chords in D ( Em, F#m, Bm)
Now let’s look at the ii, iii, and vi chord in the key of D Major. Remember, in Major keys, the ii, iii, and vi chords are always minor.
To find the chords we’re making into minor chords, just count up in the Major scale. For the D Major scale (D, E, F#, G, A, B, and C#), that would be the E, F#, and B (the second, third, and sixth notes in the scale). Make them minor and you’ve got it!
