Remarks

The string, fret, and fing 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'.
