Another common chord that is frequently used in a lot of music is the Major Chord. Since there are 12 different notes, there are 12 different major Chords. Rather than illustrate all 12 different major chords, we just illustrate the C Major Chord. Other major chords would have the exact same structure but just up or down a fret or few from C. If we were to play the modes with chords, we would use major chords for the Ionian, Lydian and Mixolydian modes. Of the common interval patterns discussed in other sections, 1, 4, and 5, usually have a major chord—unless of course one might be using power chords. The C Major Chord lesson is taxonomied in the earlier sections from the Beginner Taxonomy, in the Nominal Section of the Information Hierarchy Taxonomy and in the 4 Basic Chord Section for the Efficiency Taxonomy
