In this week's episode of Uke Minutes, we tackle the explanation of Major Chords. Building on last week's explanation of Major Scales, once you've figured out the major scale for a certain note, you can easily find the major chord that goes along with it by playing the 1, 3, and 5 together ... simultaneously (and at the same time, too).

For an in-depth discussion on how chords are formed, check out the "How Do Chords Work?" post in our forum!
