The minor chord is a triad (a three-note chord), which means the chord has 3 notes as counted from the root: 1 - b3 - 5.

Chord theory is helpful in undertanding why each chord is played the way it is. If you really want to advance, learn the theory behind chords as well.
Learning chords takes time. Playing something slow and clean, will always be better than fast and sloppy.
