I was checking out a tab site today and found a reference to a chord
labelled as Hm. Now as far as I know there is no H chord, so what am I

15 years of guitar playing and a little bit of theoretical background, I can
easily find out what is meant.

There is also the same scale in French : Do, R , Mi, Fa, Sol, La, Si, Do
This means that the scale starts at “C” or “Do”. Why does it not start at

I’m no expert but I guess that music notation has a long history and
tradition that evolved with slight differences according to different
