- Alright, now if you guys are writing songs on the guitar,…which I highly suggest it.…If you aren't writing songs already,…you definitely want to explore…your own individual artistic expression,…but it's very important to know…how diatonic harmony works, alright?…Now a diatonic harmony…is just a fancy way of saying…the chords that are in a key.…So let's check out in A major,…if you just move triads up on one string set,…in this case it's going to be on strings four, five, and six.…
The first chord is A major.…(guitar chord playing)…That's the one chord.…The second chord is minor, in this case B minor.…(guitar chord playing)…The third chord is minor.…This case it's C sharp minor.…(guitar chord playing)…The fourth chord in every key is major, and this is D major.…(guitar chord playing)…The five chord in every key is major.…This is E major.…(guitar chord playing)…The sixth chord is always minor.…This is F sharp minor.…
(guitar chord playing)…The seven chord is diminished,…in this case G sharp diminished.…(guitar chord playing)…
