Wikipedia  -  Chords  In  Music



"A chord in music is any harmonic set of two or more notes that is heard as 
if sounding simultaneously.These need not actually be played together: arpeggios and broken chords may for many practical and theoretical purposes be understood as chords. Chords and sequences of chords are frequently used in modern western, west African[3] and Oceanian[4] music, whereas they are absent from the music of many other parts of the world."
