Anyway, I would like if someone would give me an approximate number here... Considering a standard 6-string, 21-fret guitar (therefore 22 notes per string, including open strings) how many chords would be possible with the following limitations.. -A chord must consist of no less than 3 notes, and no more than 6 -No more than 1 note can come from one string at a time -Assume the player can't reach any more than 4 frets (chords must be kept within 4 frets) -Only 4 fingers, but the index, ring, and little finger can fret more than one at a time (but ONLY at the same fret) -Notes may be duplicated as long as the 1-note-per-string rule is observed With the above limitations, approximately how many guitar chords are (physically) possible? Let me know if it's not enough information.
