All of the symbols represent the same here as they do above. The
legend will be applicable for all chords.

Each of the major chords are built from a corresponding minor scale.
Each of the minor chords consists of a triad in notation. The formula for
a minor triad is as follows: R- (flatted) 3- 5. This means if your C minor
scale is: C D Eb F G Ab Bb C, Root = C, 3rd = Eb, 5th = G. Notice that
it is exactly the same as a minor triad except for the flatted (b) 3rd. Also,
the only notes played will be the R-3-5.
Here are some of the common ways that these chords and notes will be
referred to. Cm, Dm, Em, Fm, Gm, Am, Bm, Cmin, Dmin, Emin, Fmin,
Gmin, Amin, Bmin.
