Look at it this way- everyone rags on air guitar here because everyone can play guitar. If we were on a lawn mower forum, air guitar would be okay and they would ridicule air mowing.

Not really. Normal major chords are just the root, 3rd, and 5th. However, if you wanted to add the 7th, then it would become a major 7 chord. What he has is a regular major chord.
