Value conforms to data.FINGER.FRET . chordMember
@fret (optional) Records the location at which a string should be stopped against a fret. Value conforms to data.FRET . att.fretlocation
@inth (optional) Encodes the harmonic interval between pitches occurring at the same time. One or more values from data.INTERVAL.HARMONIC , separated by spaces. att.intervalharmonic
@label (optional) Provides a name or label for an element. The value may be any string. Value of datatype string. att.commonPart

@oct (optional) Captures written octave information. Value conforms to data.OCTAVE . att.octave
@pname (optional) Contains a written pitch name. Value conforms to data.PITCHNAME . att.pitch
@xml:base (optional) Provides a base URI reference with which applications can resolve relative URI references into absolute URI references. Value conforms to data.URI . att.commonPart

The fing and fret attributes are provided in order to create displayable chord tablature grids. The inth (harmonic interval) attribute may be used to facilitate automated performance of a chord. It gives the number of 1/2 steps above the bass. Of course, for the bass note itself, inth should be set to '0'. The fret at which a finger should be placed is recorded in the fret attribute.
