I think your question is about the [A triad] which I dont understand his concept of triads. Major chords are scale degrees 1,3,5 (1st, 3rd, 5th notes) example: C Major Scale [C], D, [E], F, [G], A, B, C [C, E, G] is 1,3,5 from the C scale, so this is the C Major Chord. The A scale is [A], B, [C#], D, [E], F#, G#, A [A, C#, E] is scale degrees 1,3,5 which makes the Amaj chord. Chords are built from scales not [triads] if you need help understanding scales post another question containing your email, I will help you out.
