I am currently working on a song that starts out in with a clean tone passage that is in a Major key. I'm not too familiar with theory, but I know it's a major key. It starts out with these chords being pick in single notes. It's slow.

How could I change the key of this into a minor key?
You take various sized pots and pans, 2 wooden spatulas, sit yourself down on the ground, arrange said pots and pans around you, put on some music, and become the best drummer your kitchen has ever seen.

ya gotta find the relative minor and then start resolving the progression to that note.

it looks like its in D Major

the relative minor would be Bminor

you would have to resolve the notes to Bminor

if you want the key to change some things u can do to help the resolution change

stay away from Dmajor as it will pull back to major sounding very easily if used

start and end on Bminor

stay away from the major chords in that scale

If you wanted to switch from D major to D minor (parallel minor rather than relative minor) you could do something like this:

--13-13-13-13-----
--x--11-13-15-----
--10-0--0--0------
--0---------------

This. You're most likely looking for the parallel minor.
