Learning Jazz Chords (Part 2 - Minor 6th Chords!)

Updated: Mar 15

Minor 6th chords are beautiful chords, especially the chord inversions! In order to create a minor 6th chord, you can first create the major 6th chord, then lower the 3rd. For example, a C6 chord is C-E-G-A, but to create a minor 6th chord, you would then lower the E. So, the chord would become C-Eb-G-A. Here are the minor 6th chords below! Once you have mastered some of these chords, you can start to practice the chord inversions (change the order of the notes)!
