I can tell you the intervals:

the first is a major third and then a fourth up from that

the next is a minor third interval with a fourth above that

First chord:

D-F-A
1-b3-5

So... Dm.

Second Chord:

D-F#-A
1-3-5

D Maj. would be this chord.

Finally... the third chord.

A - C - E
1-b3-5

Am.

So the progression would be... Dm - Dmaj. - Am.

Can you enlighten me on how this works? For the D chords did you say that they are in the key of D and then you just worked off that to find the chord? Then the A chord you said was in the key of A? I would really love to understand how this works

D Maj. 1-3-5 or D-F#-A

It's D, there's no way it could be a plain E.

As for the naming chords, it really is a matter of learning your theory well and examining chords for a while; look at the notes that you have, think about the possible chords it could make up and then go with the name that most fits the context.

Easy: E

E?? What did you smoke? XD there's no E on that chord.

Learn the notes of the guitar, might take a while to get it fluently but it's easy.
Then you'll know the notes of that chord and even if you can't name it at least you'll realize THERE'S NO E.

All this thread is concerned with is how chords are constructed. Key Signatures is a whole different topic. Don't be confused with keys. Keys just signfiy where sharps/flats are placed within a piece.

Onto on how i found those chords.

For the first chord.

E-10
B-10
G-10


I looked at the frets and found that on the E string the note was D. Next String! B. I found that it was an A note. Finally, I found on the G string was the note F.

So we have D-A-F. Since we know that D-F-A is Dm we can conclude that this chord is Dm. Just find the notes and remember chord formulas.
