What the heck is a µ major?

How to explain the µ major chord?
From the masters themselves: Intro to the Steely Dan Songbook

Interesting items left untouched:
* how to play the µ minor?
* how to play G µ major at the 1st position?

Beware inappropriate voicings:

if you’re up on the bandstand playing an unaesthetic voicing of the µ major chord…we’re going to notice the minute we walk in and so will anybody else with half an ear…So tighten up

Here’s an example of µ chord use in a non-Steely Dan tune:
Guitar riff from Every Breath You Take

Note the unaesthetic voicing in bar 6.
