Introduction To Chords

This next section on chords is written with the assumption that you have a working knowledge of intervals (major, minor, augmented, diminished, and perfect).

A Chord is a musical structure comprised of three or more tones. Simple Chords, made up of only three notes, are what we will focus on in this section. They can be either Major, Minor, Diminished, or Augmented. There are more complex chords, consisting of four or more notes, but we will discuss those in a later section.
