We will now be learning the major chord formula. We will be applying it to the E major scale and, therefore, be creating an E major chord. The formula is to take the 1st, 3rd & 5th notes from the major scale. This is made clearer by the diagram below: (See website).
We can see how this works in a practical setting by putting these 3 notes anywhere on the guitar to create an E major chord. The fretboard below shows a few examples of these three notes together on the guitar, all of which will be E major chords! Notice how 'Example 4' is the basic open chord shape for E major. You can see how it still has the 3 notes E, G# and B, but they are repeated to fill out all 6 strings.
