    I'm gonna give this question a try... I was reading Jazzbo's Intro to Theory and he talks about a series of triads in the Major scale that are number as follows:
    I ii iii IV V vi vii
    So lets say I wanna know the triads for a Minor scale, would it be as follows?
    i ii III iv v VI VII

    I hope this is clear, I'm not really for sure what they are called.

    Thanks,
    Trigg

    Correct. Except vii in Major and ii in minor are diminished, not minor. Diminished = m3 b5 in case you don't know how to construct one.
