Any1 know of a site that lists the notes on each chord (for ex: C major - CEG)
By the way, instead of just learning it by each chord, how would i go about learning it? It seems to me that for a major chord, its the root note then the 3rd and 5th note of scale in that chord. Is this right? How does the minor chords work?

Google "How to construct chords" and read any of the first 100 results. It's a pretty expansive subject.

But yes, all major chords are root, 3rd and 5th. On the minor chords, you just flat the 3rd(one fret down) and the root and fifth stay the same.

^--the google thing.

Major = 1 3 5
minor = 1 ♭3 5
Diminished = 1 ♭3 ♭5
Augmented = 1 3 ♯5

I'm sure if you use the search tool for chord construction here at UG you will find some useful threads. I know it's been covered because I know I have posted some big posts on the topic before.
