A major triad consists of a root, major third and perfect fifth. A minor triad consists of a root, minor third and perfect fifth. For example, a C major triad is C E G and a C minor triad is C Eb G. If this doesn't make sense to you, check out some beginners' lessons on general theory and intervals.
^ Hit the nail on the head.
To me it seems that Majors are happier and brighter and Minors are sadder and darker. I don't need to know anything else. I just need to know how to play them.
The only differance between Major and Minor is that Minor has a flatted third. So all you do is basically play your 3rd one fret down.
Oh wow lol i feel so stupid you guys said it were it seems so easy thankyou so much!
