Hey and thank you for this guide, i have question regarding your table:


Are those rules stay the same for all the other Major mods? (including modifying one's)

Intervals are more basic than modes, in fact you can construct modes and scales form intervals!

This is really good, but I do not know if I'm stupid now, but I have a question about 3th

if I take C and E together then I get a major chord, but if I take B and D together, I think you get a minor chord?

You actually need 3 notes to make a chord (that chord is called triad).
But yes - major chord is : root - major 3rd - perfect 5th and minor chord is : root - minor 3rd - perfect 5th
So in both chords the 3rd will define if it is major or minor depending if its the major 3rd or minor 3rd.

You should cover the basic interval theory first before going to chords. Chords are made from intervals. Very important rule here that always stands is:

minor + major second = minor third
major + major second = major third


This means:

1. C - D - E fraction of notes all have major second intervals in between them, so C - E relation is major third relation
2. B - C - D fraction of notes have minor second interval between B - C, and major second between C and D, so B - D relation is minor third.


When stacking third intervals into chords, this rule applies:

1. major third + minor third = major chord
2. minor third + major third = minor chord
3. minor third + minor third = diminished chord


This is why it is important to go through the scale note ranges and remember the second intervals in between notes!

Thanks for the replies!

Is it because the intervals is shorter between B and D, then between C and E that makes them "different"?
But the tonika is C so if i played B and D together over a C chord, it would sound like major?

The reason is the distance between the notes. You can check this on the fretboard to see how it works out.

Play a B on the 2nd fret of the 5th string, then a D on the 5th fret of the 5th string.

This is a minor 3rd interval.

Then, play a B on the 2nd fret of the 5th string and then a D# on the 6th fret of the 5th string.

This is a major third interval.

So it is the distance from the lower note that dictates what the interval is, not the key you are in.

If you play E and G over a C bass note, it will produce a major triad, because the E and G are being heard over the C root note.

But, if you just play the notes E and G, that is a minor third interval so it will sound minor.

Hope that helps.
