If you don’t know anything about music theory, it’s okay… major and minor thirds are those notes that sound really harmonious and complimentary to one another when played together: one of the most used harmonies out there, I say.  The most basic example would be looking at a piano and playing any two white keys together with only one other white key in between (although you can play thirds with the black keys, too!): you’re sure to hit either a major third or a minor third.  Major and minor just mean the quality of the notes together.  You can look at major as being “happy” and minor being “sad” sounding.

Bells!  I haven’t played those in a long time and thought I’d whip them out…
