Let me know McJollyson when you are ready to learn about Relative Scales and their aplicationes. ;)

The best place to start, is understanding the Major Scale in the key of "C".
So, we are gonna be using seven notes:
C....D....E....F.....G.....A.....B
1....2....3....4.....5......6.....7
where "C" is the Root note,
"D" is the second,
"E" is the third; and so on.
To build a Chord on the first note(root); you need three notes: The first, the third and the fifth.
C............E.....G
Root........3.....5
So, you play those three notes(C,E,G) together, and you are playing a "Cmajor chord"
That is a basic chord, and because you are using three notes is called "Triad".
I don`t wanna get you confused.
So I`m gonna stop rigth there.
Someday I`ll play like in my dreams.
