About This Class

In this course I'm going to teach you how to find any major triad. The major triad is one of the most used chords in music. Once you know the structure of a major triad, you can find all the major triads, because no matter if you're playing G, E, or F major, the structure of the chords is always the same.

Being able to play chords is a very useful skill, it will help you play almost any pop song easily. The most used chords are the major and minor triads. In this course we're discussing the major triad.

After watching this course you will be able to find and play all major triads. I do recommend a minimum of 15 minutes of practice every day. Chords are most useful to you if you don't have to think about them, but if you've practiced them so much that they come natural and easy to you.
