I've been playing for a while now, but I still don't understand the relationship between major and minor chords. I read in a book that one not is a half-step lower or something, but I don't know. If someone has an easier way to explain, that'd be great.

F major


E|-1
B|-1
G|-2
D|-3
A|-3
E|-1


F minor


E|-1
B|-1
G|-1
D|-3
A|-3
E|-1


The note that changed is the third note in the key of F. So to turn any basic major chord into a minor, you flat the 3rd by a half step.

So the third note in a major chord is the one that's down a half-step right?

Not the 3rd note. Its the 3rd interval.

The 3rd is what determines a chord to be major or minor.
