It's chordNameSeparator. Sorry.  "Different parts of a chord name are
normally separated by a slash", says the manual.  If you get rid of
it, you can't do C7b5b9/Bb but if you keep it you get C7/b5/b9/Bb.  If
you need a slash for bass notes use text, and of course that way you
can use parentheses C7(b5b9)/bb.  I like lower case for the bass
note although not many people use it yet, because it's far less likely
to be mistaken for another chord name.  daveA

The only technical exercises for guitar which are worthy of the
instrument consist in "Dynamic Guitar Technique".  I promise miracles.
