• If you play one or two notes only in the left hand, or three
notes that do not make up a recognizable chord formation,
no sound will be produced. The FINGERED mode requires
a conventional three or four-note chord formation to
produce an auto-accompaniment. Also, note that auto-
chords only work in conjunction with rhythm patterns, and
not independently of them.
• The above examples show only one of the possible fingerings
for each chord. Note that you can play the notes that form a
chord in any combination. Each of the following fingerings for
example, produces the same C chord.
• See the "Fingered Chord Charts" on page A-3 for
information on the fingerings of chords for all roots.
