I have gone through this question
The chord formula for the Major Chord is 1- 3 - 5. What do the numbers represent? I haven't understand that and I have also read many document.
Please can any one make me understand in layman language.
I know that chromatic scales work on 12 notes. major scale work on octave formula(W-W-H-W-W-W-H) chords represent 1-3-5 . 1 notes ,3 notes, and 5 notes of C major scales. but why 1-3-5 only why not other notes Thanks for the help
