so i have booked my self in for a theory teacher for monday and that will be a weekly appointment

anyways i thought i would just try and figure out some chord construction for my self ?

please correct anything if im wrong, but do it in detail please

so if i were to want to know what the chords are in the key of, G major


so i found a G (third fret, low E string) and used a scale of

D:-----------------2----4-----5
A:------2-----3-----5---------
E:-3----5---------------------

and then worked out what the notes are, which are G A B C D E F# G

and then i put this patten of that: major, minor, minor, major, major, minor, diminished.

so the chords in a key of G are g major, a minor, b minor, c major, d major, e minor, f# diminished.

then to make the chord i got the root note, major 3rd, and perfect 5?


this all this correct?


oh and please add me if you would like to help me further, b-laz-e@hotmail.com

Pretty much right, a major chord is root, major third fifth. A minor chord has a minor third instead, and a diminished chord has both a minor third and a diminished fifth (a half step lower).

seems you got a good grip on it, except say that triads (three note chords) are made of a root, a third, and a fifth. its type of third and fifth is what gives it its name. A root, major third, and perfect fifth is a major chord, root + minor third+perfect fifth is minor chord. root + minor third+diminished fifth is a diminished chord, and root + major third+ augmented fifth is an augmented chord. but yeah, you seem to have a good idea
