    Welcome to the 3rd lesson in this course. Now we are taking our first look at chords. First, what are chords? Well chords are groupings of notes that are played together to give a combined sound. They are usually made up up 3 notes (known as a triad) or more. The most common chords are Major chords and Minor chords. These are usually the first chords learned on any instrument.
