a major chord consists of the first, third and fifth notes in the scale. A minor chord has the first, a lowered third (semitone or 1 fret on your guitar)and the fifth. eg. c major has c,e and g (1,3 and 5) c minor has c,e flat and g(1,lowered 3 and 5)

The way that I remember the difference between major, and minor chords is major chords sound happy, and minor chords sound glummy. Always remember that a minor chord is the same as a major, you just lower the third note a half. So if E major is E, G# (sharp), and B. Then E minor would be E, G, and B.

A Major is a officer in the Army, a Minor is someone who digs holes in the ground, who wants to be a Major.
