Reading Minor 2nds Chord

Now we will play Minor 2nds as chords.

A chord is two notes played at the same time.

The technical name for a two note chord is a diad.

In music notation, a diad looks like this:

Because the notes are so close together, one must be pushed off to one side in order to fit.

Sometimes even though the accidental is on the left side, it is actually attached to the note on the right.

The rule is to look at the center of the accidental.

The accidental will be at the exact same height as the note it is altering.

Because you can only play one note at a time with the mouse, just enter them one at a time from low to high.
