What are primitive fingerings?
These are fingerings that can’t be derived from another fingering of the same chord by muting some strings. For example, for the C chord, standard guitar tuning, [X32010] and [X32013] are both primitive fingerings, but [X3201X] isn’t since it can be derived from one of the two previous fingerings by muting the first string. Restricting to such fingerings filters redundant information.
