ChordA chord is a written representation of a set of musical notes. When written in text format (as opposed to musical notation, or sheet music), a chord usually looks like these examples: ABmC7DsusEbF#Gdim. A chord can also indicate its "voicing" by showing which notes should be played by bass instruments or the left hand on a piano, like this: A/ECm/EbG7/D.  
TransposeTo transpose (the process of "transposition") is the process of changing the root key of a song to a different chord (also known as "modulating" when it is done in the middle of playing a song).
