In music, when you play a piano chord you can make a more advanced piano chord by adding color to the chord or adding more notes. For example, a C-major chord would consist of the notes C-E-G (the 1-3-5) by adding the Bb (the Flat 7th), or the D note (the 2) You can make super advanced chords, making you sound like an Amazing musician!!!
