hungarian minor chord

Warning: this article and the video linked are for music theory nerds (like me and many of you). It's going to be fun and interesting if you like theory. Don't watch the video if you can not appreciate some sound exploration and chord nitpicking :)

So that is this all about?

Some time ago I published a video on the Hungarian minor scale and when we were finding out its chords, I said that there was no usable chord on the 4th degree of the scale.

Boy, was I wrong...

...well, I was also partially right as we will see ;)

Turns out that there is not one, but several usable and interesting sounds that come from trying to build a chord on that degree of the scale. There is definitely some new sound for you to use - and given how delicious the Hungarian Minor scale sounds, I know that many of you will put these sounds to good use.

So I was wrong to not mention these sounds - and this video is my apology and correction! Have fun with the missing chord(s) of the Hungarian Minor scale:

And of course, here's the original video on the Hungarian Minor scale. This is one of my all-time favorite exotic scale and the songs you can write from its chords will definitely NOT sound like your usual pop song!

Have fun with some more exotic chords:

To learn how to use all these chords (and more) so that you can write actual music and be able to come up with your own harmonic ideas and make your music finally your OWN music, then have a look at the Complete Chord Mastery Guitar Course that gives you the tools to finally master everything about harmony, chords, accompaniment, chord progressions on your guitar.
