What is the difference between TABS and CHORDS for guitar?
I. CHORD A chord is a set of three or more pitch classes that are perceived as one unit, as if sounding together or belonging together, of which not all pitch classes need to sound, but some may be just implied by the other pitch classes sounding. I’ll explain: By pitch classes I mean that all C’s are one pitch class, all D’s are one pitch class and so on. So if you play three C’s (say, C2, C3 and C4) together, it is not a chord because these are three notes, but the same pitch class (though in very rare circumstances even this could suggest a chord). If you played C, F and B together, this would already be a chord. By ”not all need to sound” I mean that you can omit some but you will still hear their presence in a way (and if you have really good ears, you may even really hear it). For example you can always omit the perfect fifth, like in C major chord which is build of C, E and G (the perfect fifth), you can play C and E together, without the G and you will still hear it as a C ma
