Major and Minor Chords

Can you hear the differences between major and minor chords? In this exercise you will hear either a major or minor chord for each question. Identify which type of chord you hear.

To get you started, here's an example:

  • This is a D Major chord - play
  • This is a D Minor chord - play


The middle note in the minor chord is a semitone lower than in the major chord, producing a less bright sound than the minor chord.
