Three or more tones sounding simultaneously. In traditional European music the base chord is a triad consisting of 2  thirds. Major (major + minor third) as well as minor (minor + major third) chords may be extended with more thirds. Four-tone seventh chords and five-tone ninth major chords are most often used as dominants (functional harmony). A special case is chords having no third above the lower notes to define their quality as major or minor. Such chords are denoted open chords
