To play music instruments such as guitar, bass, banjo and ukulele, you need to understand the various chords and scales. Most of the professional musicians who have mastered the art of playing these instruments had to spend hours training. Thomas Grapperson has developed a guitar app called Chord! that is tailored to help you master the various chords.

In addition, you can come up with unique fingerings by tuning the chords as well as generate beautiful print-ready PDF document to share with friends and colleagues in seconds.

The app also allows users to import songs that they have already created in text format easily in just a few taps. Unlike other similar apps in the market that rely on chord charts, this one computes and analyzes each cord for possible fingerings and inclusion in music files.

You do not need to know the music theory to derive maximum benefits from this app, as it can handle the subtleties of music and deliver the expected results fast. This will save time for other income-generating activities, especially if you create music as a hobby.

Best Features

One of the major features that give Chord! an upper hand in the market is that it allows users to harmonize the various scales available. This means that you can use any sequence of chords to find a scale that best suits the song that you want to record or write.

This guitar learning app analyses and presents scales with nice interactive views (scale, score, and keyboard). Of course, the guitar chords app can also lay down these scales on a neck (with sound) and compute their fingerings.

It comes with hundreds of tunings that you can use to come up with good music files. More importantly, you can add your own tunings from any instrument whether you have a capo or not. In fact, you can add a tuning using a broken string. The choice is all yours to make.

As mentioned earlier, it does not use a predefined database to create charts. This means that you can create your own chart by just feeding the app with the right chords. The developers have incorporated superior algorithms that enable it to generate charts in seconds.

In addition, you can add extra chord from fingerings, input complex harmonic structures, compute keys of scale, and find scales that blend with the chords.
