Building the Major and Minor Triad Chords – Part 1
So let's finally get into chords, and the two fundamental piano chords: Major and Minor.

Q: What is a chord?
A chord is usually defined as at least three notes played simultaneously, which means that at least two intervals are played at the same time (with one note in common
between both intervals). Before going to that description, let’s take a look at some examples of the Major and Minor Triad chords.

Yet… you might be wondering... 

Q: What is a Triad chord?
A “Triad chord” (sometimes shortened as just “Triad”) is a chord with 3-notes.

Let’s see some Major Triad examples

Listen to all of them played together: 

And now some Minor Triad examples:

C Minor Chord Piano

C Minor Chord Piano

F Minor Chord

F Minor Chord

G Minor Chord

G Minor Chord

As you can see both the Major and Minor triads are very similar. Again, you don’t need
to memorize the notes of every Major and Minor chord in every key. By knowing the
Perfect Fifth, Major Third, and Minor Third intervals, you’ll be able to build up any Major or
Minor chord on ANY key. Let’s see how this works.
