Hi all, how are you?

I have a little question,
How do you write sad songs.
I know minor is suitable for that but what minor scale exactly?

Which of them has the most touching chords?

Any othter tips for writing sad songs would be greatly appreciated...

Best Regards

Find a book of "sad songs" that you like.

Study the chords that were used. You will find those sounds that move you the most.
