In this video you will discover how to play the E Major Chord on the piano.
The E Major Chord has two white notes with a black note in the middle: E, G sharp (or G#), and B.
It may be easiest to find the black note, the G# first.
To find the G sharp with your right hand, put your middle finger on the black note that’s in the middle of the group-of-three black notes. Place your pinky on the white note that is above (or to the right) of the group-of-three black notes. Your thumb will play E, which is the white note above (or to the right) of the group-of-two black notes.
With your left hand, place your middle finger on the G#. Put your thumb on the B (above the three black notes), and your pinky will go on E (the white note above the two black notes).
When reading a chord chart, you will only see a capital E. It’s a musician’s shorthand way to write E Major.
