How would I go about harmonizing a minor scale? Like Dm, or Gm?

Would it be the same as harmonizing a major scale? Can anybody give me an example? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The same way you would a major, if you want to harmonise a 3rd then go three up in the minor scale.

hmm

Let's take D harmonic minor, it has the notes:

D E F G A Bb C# D

To harmonize the thirds, you just take the third note right?

I'm a noob to harmony and theory too, so hopefully I'm right.

D is G,

E is A

F is Bb

G is C#

A is D

Bb is E

C# is F

should be right,

hmm, but D is G?

okay, so someone explain this to me as well.

You would play the D and harmonise with a G.

Edit:

**Disregard**^ The guy below me is right, the D is the first, E is second and F is the third.

the third of D is actually F

ie. a triad of D is DFA where D is 1, F is 3 and A is the fifth

so to harmonise the third of D you would play the F and the same third rule applies for other notes

You're harmonising in 4ths, there. Count up 3, including the starting note.

D is F,

E is G,

F is A,

etc. etc.

To harmonise just go up a third each time.
