ive heard people talking about chords and breaking them down..what does that mean exactly?
I assume they mean into their intervals, like the root, 3rd, 5th, 7th, etc.
placing your fingers into the shape of the chord individually for example: a D chord
e |------2--
B |----3----
G |-2-------
D| ----------
A |----------
E |----------
or at least thats what i got taught.
I believe it has to do with music theory and what notes sound good together to form a chord. There's more to it but that's the gist..

edit: I basically restated less formally what gotsa said.
