Major Chords

In the glossary of major chords we have the position for each finger marked with a number, with the arrangement that appears in the image below.

The red X indicates the string that is not played, and the black numbers mark the string number, starting from the nut.

The Major Chords are made up of three notes, the Tonic (1st) that gives its name to the chord, the Dominant (5th) and the Median (3rd). For example: to get a C Major chord we need a C (1st), a G (5th note of the C Major scale) and an E (3rd note of the C Major scale).
