The German noun 'Akkord' refers to a musical term that means a combination of three or more notes played simultaneously. It is commonly used in the context of harmony and chord progressions in music.

In music theory, an Akkord is formed by stacking different intervals on top of each other, such as thirds or fourths. The specific combination of notes determines the quality and function of the chord within a musical piece.

Akkords are fundamental building blocks in Western tonal music and are used extensively in various genres and styles, including classical, jazz, pop, and rock. Understanding how to construct and use Akkords is essential for musicians and composers to create harmonically rich and expressive musical compositions.
