Difference between Chord and Cord

Chord refers to a group of musical notes.

  • Many of the group’s earlier hits consisted of just three chords.

Cord refers to a vocal cord, a cord of wood, or a rope.

  • The high notes and fast tempo strained his vocal cords.
  • To be on the safe side, I bought two cords of wood for winter.
  • Please pull the cord when you get to the back door.
