In this lesson, we'll use the concept of the "one chord", the "four chord", and the "five chord" to figure out what the major chords are in the key of E.

Turns out they will work out to be E, A, and B.

Uh-oh, the B major chord is not everybody's best friend.

But don't worry - I'm going to show you an alternative that works in many songs, that is much easier to play. It's an open chord, called "B7".

We'll talk about that "7" thing later on in the course. Just stay with me here!
