5-8 Minor Chords in C (Dm, Em, Am)
There is an intentional pattern of what’s Major and what’s minor. If you think about the scale, the first, fourth, and fifth chords are always Major. The second, third, and sixth chords are minor. So your C Major scale will look like this:
C, Dm, Em, F, G, Am, B(dim)
This pattern is the same for all Major scales’ chords.
