Examples of ‘relative’ and ‘parallel’ minor keys refer to C major. 8 For example, the C major key is (psychologically as well as from a music–theoretical point of view) closer related to its minor relative (a minor) than to its minor parallel (c minor).

This spatial map will become important for approaching the issues of how chords relate to different tonal centres and how the sense of key develops and changes as listeners hear sequences of chords (see Chapters 9 and 10).
