F Minor guitar chordF Minor guitar chord

F minor guitar chord is a minor scale based on F, consisting of the pitches F, G, A♭, B♭, C, D♭, and E♭. The harmonic minor raises the E♭ to E♮. Its key signature has four flats (see below: Scales and keys).

Its relative major is A-flat major, and its parallel major is F major.

F minor chord is a key often associated with passion. Two famous pieces in the key of F minor are Beethoven's Appassionata Sonata, and Haydn's Symphony No. 49 in F minor, La Passione.

Glenn Gould once said if he could be any key, he would be F-minor, because "it's rather dour, halfway between complex and stable, between upright and lascivious, between gray and highly tinted...There is a certain obliqueness."[1]

In the Baroque period, music in F minor was usually written with a three-flat key signature, and some modern editions of that repertoire retain that convention
