Definition for: Borrowed chord

A chord taken from a parallel key. Parallel keys have the same root, such as C major and C minor. This means that you can change from C major to C minor using a borrowed chord, which changes to a sadder sound but still maintains the same basic tonal structure. This can help you create more interesting sounds in your compositions.
