"Chords are not finger diagrams" - in the sense that words aren't letters on a page I suppose that's true. But finger diagrams I can at least make sense of. Spellings and highly variable conventions for naming strange chords - I can't keep up with that.
I think they should be given arbitrary names, like hurricanes, and users referred to chord charts to find out what they look like.
What's the spelling for the Sullivan's Lost Chord, anyway?
