The ones responsible for this website will hardly be accused of being quick to answer questions. But I'll give it a try, in case anybody is following this thread, which I doubt.

There are three family chords, also called primary chords, in each scale, with the first, fourth and fifth note of the scale as the root note. For example in the key of C major or the C major scale, the family chords would be based on the C, F and G notes of the piano.

C major scale is C, D, E, F, G, A and B. Hope that is clear. So when you count starting with C as 1, you see that F and G notes are notes number four and five, C of course number one.

So the family chords of C major scale are:

C chord = C - E - G notes.
F chord = F - A - C notes.
G chord = G - B - D notes.

You can build the family chords of any scale, for example in the key of F, the family chords would be F (FAC notes), Bb (Bb-D-F notes) and C (CEG notes.)

Hope that helps.

Every member who feels has the knowledge to answer questions can, there is no such thing as responsible person responding all questions. I am glad you did answer and I hope you will share more knowledge with whoever is asking questions.

I have never heard of family chords but I did know about primary chords which are also called triads. Now I learned something new. Thank you.

All readers can find more on chords and harmonizing can be found here
