Letters (i.e., A, B, C) are used to designate musical divisions created by the repetition of material or the presentation of new, contrasting material. Some of the most common forms in rock music are:

    This course will introduce students to the theory of music, providing them with the skills needed to read and write Western music notation, as well as to understand, analyse, and listen informedly. It will cover material such as pitches and scales, intervals, clefs, rhythm, form, meter, phrases and cadences, and basic harmony. This course covers the fundamentals of Western music theory, from   still covers only the bare essentials of music theory.

These are referred to as polyphonic signals, in contrast to monophonic signals where at most one note is sounding at a time.

In fact, the most common added-note chord in most types of Western music is a V chord (the dominant chord) with a minor seventh added (V7).
