Chord Names and Symbols

I wrote this extensive paper on chords and symbols some years ago. Most musicians find it very useful, but also quite complicated and a bit nerdy. It is aimed at music teachers and advanced students.

It's a free download. However, it could be wise to study the free course Harmony & Chords first.
