An individual pitch in a chord defined by a <chordDef> element.
Module MEI.harmony
@accid.ges(optional)Records the performed pitch inflection. Value conforms to data.ACCIDENTAL.IMPLICIT. att.accidental.performed
@fing(optional)Indicates which finger, if any, should be used to play an individual string. The index, middle, ring, and little fingers are represented by the values 1-4, while 't' is for the thumb. The values 'x' and 'o' indicate muffled and open strings, respectively. 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
@n(optional)Provides a number-like designation for an element. Value conforms to token. att.common
@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
@xml:id(optional)Regularizes the naming of an element and thus facilitates building links between it and other resources. Each id attribute within a document must have a unique value. Value of datatype ID. att.id

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.
