I'm looking for the best way to add structured data to a page that shows how to play a chord on the guitar, like this one.

I think that the best schema would be SheetMusic, that is a direct child of CreativeWork. The descriptions says "Printed music, as opposed to performed or recorded music.", but it's just a proposal to be integrated into Schema.org for now.

Any suggestion?

You can use HowTo schema.

“How-to” snippets aim to provide step-by-step instructions directly in the SERPs for instruction-based queries.

But before adding this schema, you need to add these instructions on your page.

Example -

Step 1 - C Major Chord (Open Position)

Step 2 - C Major Chord (based on A major shape)

Step 3 - C Major Chord (based on G major shape)

Step 4 - C Major Chord (based on E major shape)

Step 5 - C Major Chord (based on D major shape)

(Source - liveabout.com)

After adding these steps, schema for these steps will be like -

<script type="application/ld+json">
{
  "@context": "http://schema.org",
  "@type": "HowTo",
  "name": "Learn the C maj guitar chord",
  "step":[
  {
    "@type": "HowToStep",
    "text": "C Major Chord (Open Position)",
    "image": "https://example.com/1x1/photo.jpg"
  }, {
    "@type": "HowToStep",
    "text": "C Major Chord (based on A major shape)",
    "image": "https://example.com/1x1/photo.jpg"
  }, {
    "@type": "HowToStep",
    "text": "C Major Chord (based on G major shape)",
    "image": "https://example.com/1x1/photo.jpg"
  }, {
    "@type": "HowToStep",
    "text": "C Major Chord (based on E major shape)",
    "image": "https://example.com/1x1/photo.jpg"
  }, {
    "@type": "HowToStep",
    "text": "C Major Chord (based on D major shape)",
    "image": "https://example.com/1x1/photo.jpg"
  }
]
}
</script>

Modify the schema according to your steps.

Take a look at creative work schema.

  • A link only answer is not high quality. A better answer would explain more and give examples. Links should be used for reference. They are not answers in and of themselves. – Stephen Ostermiller Jul 29 at 14:50
