How do skeletal chords figure in? I mean, if you listen to Thelonius Monk, the chords are unmistakably there, but rarely have the full complement of notes required for the "three notes" criteria. Ben Armstrong 17:26, 12 February 2007 (UTC)[reply]

That's a voicing of a chord. I was just thinking about whether I should add voicings to the article or include them in a separate article. SelfieCity (discusscontribs) 14:52, 7 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Tertian Harmony Only?[edit source]

This page seems to only be devoted to Tertian harmony (harmony based on the musical interval of a third). There are many other ways to create chords using seconds (Secundal harmony) or fifths (Quintal) or fourths (Quartal) not to mention modern classical music relies on musical sets that defy this traditional system of chord construction. Perhaps this article should be renamed "Tertian harmony" or "Traditional Western chords" instead of just "Chords". The "Harmony" page could probably provide a summary of all of the above schools of harmony and link to a more detailed individual page.
