Major chords are triads, also known as three note chords. The 3 notes that make up major chords are the 1st - 3rd - 5th interval notes counted from the root, ascending as per the major scale. Major chords are often inverted, meaning that we change the order of the notes to 3 - 5 - 1 for example. 5 - 1 - 3 is another popular inveret form of major chords..
