The Notes in an F Augmented Chord

The Root

This is one is easy. All you have to do to find the root of a chord is look at the name of the chord. It's the first part of the name! If it's an F Augmented chord, the root is F!

The 3rd

The third of an F Augmented chord is A. The third is up four half-steps from the Root.

Finding A from F step by step:

  • Start on: F
  • Step 1: move up to Gb
  • Step 2: move up to G
  • Step 3: move up to Ab
  • Step 4: Land on A
