Chords in the key of F# minor
by: Mantius

This question was also asked on Facebook and I responded as follows:


Vivek Sharma, it really depends on the song, but chords in the key of F# minor would be F#min, G#dim, Amaj, Bmin, C#min, Dmaj and Emaj. There is no rule, it depends on the melody.

Common chord progressions in F# minor are:
i – VI – VII F#m – D – E
i – iv – VII F#m – Bm – E
i – iv – v F#m – Bm – C#m
i – VI – III – VII F#m – D – A – E
ii – v – i G#m7b5 – C#m – F#m

To which Vivek Sharma responded:
