G minor?
Nine planets surround the sun
Only one does the sun embrace
Upon this watered one
So much we take for granted


So let us sleep outside tonight
Lay down in our mother's arms
For here we can rest safely

Yes. Gm is G Minor. In music theory though, anything minor is not capitilized.

G is G Major and g is G minor. but usually people just put G m

There.


That doesn't really explain what G minor is. It's just one of countless possible voicings made by utilizing the intervals of the chord.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

Well, he only asked which chord it was, not what a chord was...

Anyways.
G minor is a triad consisting of the root note G (391.11 hzt or any multiple of it). Then another note with a frecuency ratio of 32:27 (a minor third) which in this case is Bb (463.54 hzt) and another note with a frecuency ratio of 3:2 (perfect fifth) which in this case is D (586,66 hzt).
It is a triad formed by two thirds stacked, a minor one and a mayor one (which equals 32:27 (minor third) X 81:64 (major third) and it is 3:2 (perfect fifth) since it is 2592:1728=3:2)....

Hmmm, that would be it I think....

Careful with that. In traditional (or "classical") theory, minor chords are typically notated with a lowercase letter or roman numeral, but in pop/jazz theory, or most modern theory, an uppercase letter is used for all chords with the lowercase "m" showing the minor: "Gm", for example.

There are a lot of differences between traditional and pop/jazz theory that will annoy the hell out of you if you haven't studied both next to each other, and it's most often in the nomenclature, but not in actual meaning.

He's attempting to make fun of me for pointing out that explaining to him what Gm actually is will be far more beneficial than simply giving him a barre chord.

It is that you always tell people to go learn the theory behind major scales and diatonic harmony and stuff and rarely answer their simple questions

Although what he asked wasn't too clear...

I certainly tell them that when their question makes it obvious that they don't know those things. Where did I tell him to go learn the theory behind major scales and diatonic harmony? I don't recall mentioning either in this thread.

You kind of implied it in the way you were following the conversation.
It is that most of times you point out that their question makes it obvious that they don't know about those things, but you don't actually inform them about said subjects..

Because said subjects are often very complicated, would require that I type at least 2,000 words every time someone makes a similar thread (roughly ten times daily), and are answered in the theory sticky.

But well, we have to give them at least a little bit of advice...
Whether it is the link of the lesson, or the way in which they have to study and practise said subject, or another site, or a brief explanation, etc, if not they would kinda feel down when the only thing they can retort to is written lessons and not have things explained in a way they can understand....
