Lets take a look at how to play through all the chords around a major scale shape using the cycle of 3rds.
This movement is also very common, for maximum effect; sing the root notes as you play the exercise.
Which chord is major and which is minor?
By noticing if the chord you are moving from is minor or major you will find the next chord.
For example, moving from chord V to VII is a major third, from VI to I is a minor third interval.
These chords are also parallel minor and major.
