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. This small change from major to minor creates a very different emotion. Minor triads are known to sound melancholy and Alfie shows you the difference between the major and the minor triad on the keyboard and has some fun demonstrating the differences with current pop songs.
