Major Scale Triads

 

If you've read the tutorial covering the theory behind major scale triads, then you should find the following easy enough to understand.

The tables below show the triads contained in all the major keys. There's no substitute for knowing the theory behind this, and being able to work it all out for yourself, so please don't just try to learn all of these parrot-fashion. Really, I've included it here so that if you want to try and work out triads for a major scale, you can use these tables to check if you've got it right.
