pretty simple. you're harmonizing in thirds. not counting on the pedal note, of course.

Harmonising in 3rds you mean.

Major and minor 3rds in this case.

Well then it's a pretty random thing to say. You just as well could have said "Wow, that doesn't sound like the Russian national anthem at all" or "You know, that doesn't actually remind me of Indian Classical music!"
