I am a newbie, was going through some music theories. I could understand the 1-3-5 formations of major chord from a scale. For example, C Major Scale:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7
C D E F G A B
So C Major chord becomes 1-3-5, and hence CEG.
But how to find out which string should hold which of the notes(C/E/G). and does the order C-E-G matter? If I find C on a string, should the immediate below next string have the E and so on? (As I can see the chords, the order doesnt seem to be important, but please suggest how does it work out?)
Also if I strum downwards and upwards for the same chord, the sounds are surely different, does that matter?
