These are the seven minor scale diatonic chords that come from the D sharp minor scale.
Each diatonic chord is labelled with a roman numeral number.
All natural minor scales follow the same patten:
i, iiº, III, iv, v, VI, VII
We use uppercase roman numeral numbers to represent major chords, lowercase to represent minor chords, uppercase with a small plus sign to represent augmented chords, and lowercase with a small circle to represent diminished chords.
First, fourth and fifth chords of a natural minor scale will always be minor. Third, sixth and seventh chords of a natural minor scale will always be major. Second chord of a natural minor scale will always be diminished.
