How to Play Diminished Triads – Learning Chords on Piano

You will learn how to play diminished triads on the piano in this lesson series about chords. The sound of the diminished triad is scary and tense. Remember that the terms chord and triad are often interchanged, but a triad specifically is a chord with three notes. Like the major and minor triads, the diminished chord has a root, a third, and a fifth. The root is the name of the chord, the third refers to the note a third interval above the root and a fifth is an interval of a fifth above the root. This time the formula for this chord is 3 half steps between the root and third and 3 half steps between the third and fifth. The next lesson covers the augmented triad, which is mysterious in sound.
