Today I’m happy to present the next lesson in my ongoing course, Chords 108.
Class Audience: Any musician who’s struggling to memorize the individual notes to all those dang chords on piano or keyboards, and looking for a solution.
Today: Learn how to immediately call up the notes to any of the twelve minor chords on a keyboard — without having to rely on rote memory. This lesson applies to all twelve minor seventh chords as well.
Coming next: Dominant seventh chords.

Here’s a downloadable piano chord catalog, which I recently put together as a reference for my ‘Piano Chords 108’ series.
The objective of Chords 108 is for you to learn how to memorize all the standard chords.
Therefore, this catalog should be relied upon only to check your understanding — not as a place to look up chords without learning the simple patterns that define how chords are constructed.
Of course, one could use the catalog that way (as a “crutch”), but that would defeat the entire purpose of this course!
Chords are listed alphabetically. Each chord is spelled out by using a simple image (consisting of dots on a keyboard, indicating which keys/notes make up the chord in question).
Important: This book can be useful to any musician, not just to those who are studying ‘Chords 108.’
In a nutshell, all the standard three and four-note chords are illustrated.
