Key number 3 is middle C.
You can play the chords using any combination of these keys.
For Example : The chord of C Major can be played in the following ways
|Piano Chord||1st Key||2nd Key||3rd Key|
|C maj 1st Position||3||7||10|
|C maj 2nd Position||7||10||15|
|C maj 3rd Position||10||15||19|
As you can see for position 2, the C note ( key number 3 ) in position 1, is moved to the next octave up ( key number 10 ), and so on.
