Anyone know what the Hm7 of G/H denotes? I take a lot of chords for pop tunes form guitar sites, but don't know what this nomenclatures means.

Thanks,

This is the notation which is used traditionally in some counties (like here in Germany). Hm7 is Bm7 (b-d-f#-a) and G/H means a G major chord with a B in the bass (left hand: b right hand g-b-d, or you may as well skip the b in the right hand: g-d-g).

What you call B flat, is called B here, what you call B is called H here. That's all.

Hope this helps.

wfred,

as long as you know both types of chord notation it is not a problem at all. I just call b natural b natural and b flat b flat. I recommend it to everybody who relies on the german system, since most sheet music has the international changes. Usually it is not a problem.
