Chords

Chords are patterns of notes that make standardized sounds.

Chords help your subconcious understand note interactions. 
They teach you to skip certain intervals automatically.
They help you understand harmony and play in key.

See theory to learn how chords are made and how they interact in the key. 
See the songwriting section.


Many chord references are already available. 
I'm putting effort into more "intangible" music concepts. 


Chord theory    This is mirrored in the theory section

Advanced chord theory    Note tension relative to the key (in each chord), and substitutions in the key.
