Learn the fundamentals of music theory continuing with minor triads. Alfie Magliano (Skrizzly Adams, Niykee Heaton, Sean Kingston) demonstrates how a minor triad is built on the root, or first degree of the scale, the third degree and the fifth degree, which is the same as a major triad, but with the order switched.
