The extended chord selector lets you specify more complex harmonies, more advanced chord progressions (e.g. for jazz music) by adding the following chord types:
In addition to the above chord types, ChordPulse lets you modify the chord inversion, define slash chords (independent bass notes) and specify various chord voicing options. Chord inversions and slash chords will be discussed in the next sections, for more details about chord voicing, see section "Play menu" / "Chord Voicing...".
Please note that some music styles may contain notes that are not included in a specific chord type, for example, Blues styles may add extra notes. Also, music styles may contain less notes than defined by the chord type (typically power chords are played in some of the Rock styles).
