Thread Name: Help: What is a Chord?
Subject: RE: Help: What is a Chord?
WOW! I don't have a clue really but here is my nickel's worth. On a guitar there are always 6 notes being played in a strum. If my fingers change the sound at any of the frets there are still 6 notes being played. I can't read music and play by ear - my friends tell me it hasn't hampered my ability - so this is intrigueing! I DO know that there are really only 3 "chords" - G, C, and D. As someone once said anything else is simply showing off :')
