The "chord" is the chord the arpeggio is based off.(Arpeggio's are chords played as individual notes.) So then the "Name" is if it's major minor add9 etc. "Symbols" are symbols of that chord. Notes are the notes in that chord/arpeggio. "Steps" are the steps in the Key so for example C major notes are C E & G in the Key of "C" these notes are the 1st 2nd and 3rd
 Tilikidis 16 Aug 2007 03:17 | Quote Joined: way backCanada Karma i still dont get the steps, succesive steps and the degrees in chromatic.... what do those numbers mean. many i need to look into chords more? do u think that would clarify it?

 mightydave 16 Aug 2007 16:45 | Quote Joined: way backBelgium Karma: 2 @Tilikidis steps: steps that make up the arpeggio, for example C major arpeggio is 1 3 5 that means , 1st , 3rd and 5th note of the C major scale make A C major arpeggio so C major C D E F G A B C is C E G degrees in chromatic: again C major arpeggio here is 1 5 8, so instead of c major we take C chromatic scale C C# D D# E F F# G G# A A# B C , so 1st , fifth and 8th is again C E G successive steps : this is the frets between the notes that make up the arpeggio 4-3-5 in example of C major so first between C and E there are 4 half steps (or frets) between it, E -G are three and G and C are five steps between it. and for all other arpeggios like minor and major 7th etc also just begin with the original major scale and you'll get the same results this is what you wanted to know?
