I've read theory FAQ and relevant articles and know that the chords in a major key go

Maj Min Min Maj Maj Min Dim etc etc

I know that stands for a major key

But is it the same for minor or does it differ?

Thanks and sorry if i've missed the information somewhere else

A minor key is basically a major key starting from the 6th degree.

SO, the chords in a minor scale are -
min dim maj min min maj maj

how does that answer the question?
If you don't want to know theory that's fine, but don't come into MT and tell people to do the same!

i think...and I'm not positive...that for minor it goes:

min dim Maj min min Maj Maj

I could be wrong here though.

1.ACE min
2.BDF dim
3.CEG maj
4.DFA min
5.EGB min
6.FAC maj
7.GBD maj

there you go

Your commitment to the study of music is truly an inspiration.

TS (and only TS), try a practice one to help understand: what would be the pattern and notes (full triads) of the chords in C# minor?

If it sounds sick, you should probably give it some Tylenol.

TS, it helps to understand why the pattern goes like that. For a basic triad in a scale, you take the root, take the third("skip a note") and take the fifth("skip another note"). Thus, in C major, C D E F G A B, a C major chord is C E G, D minor is D E F, etc. Now, just think of it with C minor. C D Eb F G Ab Bb. Now when you get that chord rooted on the C, it's C Eb G, a C MINOR. Keep going the entire way up the scale and you'll figure it out. Also if you don't already know your intervals and chord construction, that's some good stuff.

Since when has a chord progression been able to catch a cold? This is news to me.

Now is when you need to get out of this thread before it gets out of hand and before you get reported. Friendly warning.

in a minor chord progression you gotta flatten the 3rd 6th and 7nth
to keep it easier just remember its the same chords as its relative major/minor key just starting on the sixth chord.

It's every other note

The Cmaj chord . From C to E is 2 full step or WW (1,3,5)...Major

If you start the count from the D note. The Dmin chord.
From D to F is WH. Therefore (1,b3,5)....Minor
And so on and so forth..

When you go to a minor scale...NO, it dosn't stay the same.

Because the interval changed

Maj 1,2,3,4,5,6,7

Min natraul 1,2,b3,4,5,b6,b7

harmonic min 1,2,b3,4,5,b6,7
