"Chord" in context

A chord is a group of two or more musical notes that are played together. It's a fundamental element of music, used in virtually every style of music. Chords can consist of three to six or more notes, although three notes are the most common. The three notes that make up a chord are derived from the major scale and are called the tonic, the third, and the fifth.

Chords are created by stacking notes from the same scale. The distance between the notes is referred to as an interval. Playing two notes of the same interval at the same time creates a chord.
