Let’s say we want to use diatonic common chord modulation to move from C major to G major. Now that we have identified the common chords in these two keys, we will choose the chord(s) on which to pivot. This is going to be our point of transition into the new key. To be clear: Common chords are merely the chords that two keys have in common. Pivot chords are the chords that we’ve actually chosen to use in our modulation. Here’s an example of a pivot chord modulation from C major to G major. Notice there are two pivot chords here: Em and Am.
In music theory, a major chord is a chord that has a root, major third, and perfect fifth. When a chord has these three notes alone, it is called a major triad
