Augmented

In music, an augmented chord is a Major Chord with the 5th note sharpened by a Semitone.

e.g if the Major Chord were Cmaj - C, E and G then Caug would be C, E and G#

Note that the augmented chord is symmetrical - two major third intervals together, so a particular augmented chord like C above is also Eaug and G#aug
