We only include the basic chords for each key because the basic chords are based on the triad. Since a balalaika has only three strings, you technically can't play a complete chord beyond a triad. For example, the C major chord consists of the C Major triad, which is derived from the C, E and G notes. A C Major 7th chord would consist of a C, E, G and a B. So you obviously can't play a full C Major 7th chord on the balalaika. Technically the same is true regarding a D 7th chord. We've included a sort of implied D 7th chord in the chart above, consisting of three of the four notes necessary to play the complete chord. We feel, though, that doing that with all of the other chords that go beyond the triad would be pointless. The chords above are based on triads created from the G major Scale. The G Major Scale is made up of: G-A-B-C-D-E-F#-G

Each major Key has a relative minor key. The relative minor key to the key of G Major is E Minor. below are chords that are based on the E Harmonic Minor Scale. The E Harmonic Minor Scale is made up of: E-F#-G-A-B-C-D#-E
