1 Simple Trick to Build Any Major Chord on the Piano

Confused on how to create your own chords on the piano? Here is a simple formula for building any major chord on the piano.

If we look at a major chord like C major, we can figure out how a major chord is constructed by looking at the distance between each note. If you count the number of steps from the first note and the second note, there are four half steps, and the distance between the second note and the third note is 3 half steps.

As practice, you can try starting on any note on the piano. Just think 4 half steps + 3 half steps.
