What are the scariest chords? Creepiest chords? Well, it’s certainly subjective. But this is a quick list of spooky chords and some advice on how to use them. You’ll notice that the majority of these revolve around a minor triad, and that shouldn’t be a surprise. Minor has a tendency to skew to the evil…
If you would like some more info on creepy composition techniques, check out this video I did a while back: https://youtu.be/CezFEDWth-c
And here’s my video on the MinMaj7 chord: https://youtu.be/Zr5hjIECFlk
The intro song I made uses every chord I mentioned, in order, with the exception of the AugMaj7 chord. So the progression is Em – EmAdd9 – EmM7 – Emb6 – Em – Bbm – Bclusterf***
Theory Note: An E Augmented Triad is composed of a root, a major third, and an augmented 5th. The 5th of E is B, and to augment it would make it a B#. This is enharmonically equivalent to C. The correct spelling of E Aug is E G# B#. Call me a bad instructor, but I intentionally avoid enharmonic confusion when possible. I can honestly care less if a musician spells a chord incorrectly, as I am not a professor and do not care about students passing tests, I care about them making music easily and efficiently. As long as the instructor gives them a footnote to explore further (as I am doing here)
SORRY THEORY NERDS!
