Thread Name: Help: What is a Chord?
Subject: RE: Help: What is a Chord?
I see I should have added the naming convention information. You have an open 5th chord. The confusion is that chords draw their names from the intervals so a minor 3rd is an interval, but when sounded at the same time is also a chord. The example is an open 5th. If you did have a 3rd it would be a major or minor triad.
