Today I’m going to talk somewhat about building chords. The most basic chord form may be the triad. All from the chords that one could build are designed around the notes of an scale. Let’s say you should build a G chord. The notes on the G major scale are G, A, B, C, D, E, F#, G. The key to creating a simple triad would be to take the take part in the first note, the 3rd note, as well as the fifth note from the scale. So, we are able to see that the G major chord is made up in the notes G, B, and D.

We is capable of doing something else using a major scale. If you make second note of your major scale, and utilizing the notes of these scale, make a triad, you will find a minor chord. For example, your second note with the G major scale is undoubtedly an A. If we take A, then skip some text to C, skip another to E, we have A, C, E, which is surely an A minor scale. If we perform same thing with the next note with the scale we are B, D, F#, that’s a B minor chord.

The fourth note of the major scale creates another major chord. In the G major scale, that chord is C major, and it’s also made up from the notes C, E, and G. Continuing inside the scale the 5th note creates another major chord. In this case, D, F#, A, or D major. The sixth note returns into a minor chord. In our example that may be E, G, B, or E minor.

The final chord produced a major scale is manufactured out of the seventh note. In G major that chord is F#, A, C, which can be an F sharp diminished chord. If you play in the diminished chord, you will appreciate that it doesn’t sound minor or major. It has a unique sound.

The intent behind this lesson is always to show you how to handle it when you are creating songs. Now you can understand how the chords that you will be using as part of your piano chord progressions come out from the scale your song’s secret is based on.
