Chord Finder Software
Soon after one begins to play a musical
instrument, the fingering for musical chords can be quite handy to know.
Chords are often played on stringed instruments such as guitar, ukulele,
bass or banjo or other similar instruments. Keyboard players often
play chords with their left hand, and sometimes also with their right
hand. But how to find the fingerings for these chords? And
how can one make all of this knowledge of how to play chords convenient?
There are a number of different types of chords -
even if one only considers what we might call the most basic chords.
Then there are also chords for each note of the scale. For
keyboard users, one can play chords as "inversions" where the notes are
the same, but one note of the chord may be higher than another.
Stringed instruments such as guitar add even more complexity.
Chords can be played down at the neck of the guitar, or one can use a
"capo" or "bar chords" and play all of the way down the fretboard -
finding as many as 13 different chord fingerings playing down the
fretboard or more - depending on their instrument. When one adds
to this that guitars may be right hand or left hand types, and the
strings themselves may be tuned differently by an artist, the complexity
becomes very high. With all of this complexity, the number and
types of chords that one might play become a very high number indeed.
How to find the one that you want?

CHORD FINDER SOFTWARE
One can either view chords directly as shown on the
screen on software screen on the left, or one can choose to print
out exactly those chords that one needs for your own music chord
chart. You can print keyboard or stringed instrument
chords. For stringed instruments, you can print both right handed and left handed
chords, or chords fingered down the fretboard. The
combinations of possible chords with all of these variations and the
variations in chord types themselves make thousands of possible
guitar / stringed instrument fingerings. Arrange to display
just the ones that you want.
