Chords
Well there doesn't seem like there's much going on in this forum.... so I thought I might try to get it started.

I could really use some help on figuring out chords, I'm not sure how to make them or how to use them. I don't even really know the basics, so any help will be greatly apprecited. My songwriting is quite difficult without this knowledge, since It takes me fifiteen minutes to find two chords that work well together.

Wrong. Practice makes permanent. If your practicing something wrong, stop. The only way to get it right (perfectly right) is to practice it right. So don't get sloppy.

Key Signatures
Well, chords that "go well" together, or atleast ones that are easy to listen to, are usually chords in the same key as the other ones.  So this brings me to my first part..Modes.  We'll use the C Major scale for the sake of simplicity.  C major is as follows, C,D,E,F,G,A,B,C.  Each note in that scale is called an interval.  Chord construction falls in a 1,3,5 interval spacing.  C,E,G being a C Major triad, or Ionian chord. (Ionian is the first mode in a scale).  Ionian(C), Dorian(D), Phrygian(E), Lydian(F), Mixolydian(G), Aeolian(A), and Locrian(B) and then it starts over again up an octave.  These are the names of all the modes in a standard major scale.  So, if you take the 1,3,5 chord construction and use it for each note in the scale, you get 7 different chords.  All theoretically constructed with almost the same notes, but in different order.  So the chords list, Cmaj, Dmin, Emin, Fmaj, G dominant, Amin, B half diminished.

These chords should transitions smoothly between most of them.  The only one that sounds a little strange is the Locrian mode, which is the half diminished.  Being a minor chord with a flatted 5th interval.  A lot of this might not make sense just yet, but it will eventually if you stick with it.  Just study your chords over and over, and if this starts to make sense, use it.
