Minor 3rds

To do this tutorial you need to know what an interval is.


Two notes are a minor 3rd apart if they have exactly 2 other notes between them.

  • So C-Eb is a minor 3rd because C and Eb have Db and D between them,
  • and D-F is a minor 3rd because D and F have Eb and E between them.

To do

Test yourself on minor 3rds, remembering to include some that start on black notes.

Sign up to my Piano Chords course to learn how to use minor 3rds in context.
