The Definition of Guitar Chord
In music, a guitar chord is a set of notes played on a guitar. A chord’s notes are often played simultaneously, but they can be played sequentially in an arpeggio.
The implementation of guitar chords depends on the guitar tuning. Most guitars used in popular music have six strings with the “standard” tuning of the Spanish classical-guitar, namely E-A-D-G-B-E’ (from the lowest pitched string to the highest); in standard tuning, the intervals present among adjacent strings are perfect fourths except for the major third (G,B). Standard tuning requires four chord-shapes for the major triads.
