The H Chord


View Full Version : The H Chord

01-15-2007, 03:04 PM
I was going through some PFI tabs, I came upon this gem:

If you scroll down to the bottom, and where it's showing the tab symbols, scroll over the h next to hammer-on. For some reason it's giving me a chord diagram for the H chord :haha . Last time I checked there wasn't an h chord, unless I missed something.

This happens all the time to text in tabs, for example if the lyrics have "I am..." in them, the am will show up as an A minor chord. But what's with the h chord?

Anyways, this doesn't even need fixing really, but why is this happening at least?

I think it's old saying fo the B chord

It automatically scans the text and finds anything like the name of a chord.

And an H chord is how you would write a B chord in some countries like Germany.

from what I know this goes from blues music... H=si, B=Hb

H = G# in Germany, I believe.

EDIT: Oh, it's B? How strange. that explains it all.

In some countries the flat symbol is called a "B", therefore they replaced the B note with the next coming letter, H.
