    Let’s get started by reviewing major triads before we proceed to the quiz!

    “What Is A Major Triad?”

    Although there are so many ways to define a triad, however, according to Jermaine Griggs, “…a triad is a collection of three related notes (agreeable or not), that may be played or heard together.”

    From the definition above, the major triad is basically a collection of three related notes.

    “Let’s Discuss Briefly On The Relationship Between The Notes Of A Major Triad…”

    The notes of the C major triad:

    …which are C, E, and G are related in two ways – by an underlying scale and a stipulated interval.

    The notes of the C major triad are related by the C natural major scale:

    …and that’s why C, E, and G:

    …are the first, third, and fifth tones of the C natural major scale.

    The notes of the C major triad are also related by third intervals, and that’s why the interval from C to E:

    …or E to G:

    …is a third interval.

    “In A Nutshell…”

    A major triad consists of the first, third, and fifth tone of the natural major scale. Consequently, using the first, third, and fifth tone of any given natural major scale, anyone can form the major triad.

    Using the D natural major scale:

    …the D major triad can be formed by playing the first, third, and fifth tones of the D natural major scale (which are D, F#, and A):

    …together.
