Hello all,

I am trying to transpose: "G D Am"
to the key of G Minor so that it becomes "Gm X Y"
but I don't know what the X & Y chords are.

Is this even possible?

Thanks in advance!

Well, what you have is a I V ii in G major. If you want to transpose it into a minor progression, you would have a i v iim7b5, so your chords would be Gm Dm Am7b5.

Out of interest why would you want to do that?

And also playing the progression it sounds like it's in Am.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

So you just want to transpose it to the parallel minor key?

I'd change it to Gm-D-Am7b5. You could use Dm, which would be diatonic to Gm, but for it to be functional you'd probably want a D.

All you need to do is look at the parallel key...and pull the chords from there.

Aerosmith has it, but do you want the new minor progression to have the same kind of sound and vibe as the original?

Use the chords that have been suggested previously, but replace them with common tone substitution (chord families).

Gm - Dm - Cm
or
Gm - F - Cm

both give that "similar" sound to the major progression.

Also, your progression sounds like Knocking On Heavens Door.

Pretty sure you meant that...

Thanks man I think that's what I've been looking for!

I wanted to transpose it because I am working on a song in Gm and found something In G major whose feel I really wanted.

^^^ Considering I felt the progression you posted was in Am, I'll suggest the same progession in Gm. F - C - Gm
