C Major Chord

The C Chord is the beginning point for all other chords.  The important thing to remember as you begin your chord study is the distance between the notes on the C Major Chord.

From C to E is the distance of a major third or 4 half steps.  From E to G is the distance of a minor third or 3 half steps.

It is the size of these 2 intervals on each chord which is so important.  So you now understand chord qualities.  This allows us to name them either major, minor, diminished, seventh or augmented.
