Chord! is at the same time the simplest and the most complete chords and scales app for guitar or any fretted instrument like bass, ukulele, banjo, etc.

Unlike other chord charts app, Chord! doesn't rely on a database of charts. Instead, it computes and analyses all the possible fingerings.
You don't even have to know music theory to use it: behind its brute force, the app knows how to handle by itself some subtleties of music in order to give meaningful results.

If you don't have to be an advanced player to use the app, you can however take a look under the hood and tweak the parameters if you like! Whatever is your level or your instrument, Chord! will adapt and give you the most precise answer.

You can search for practically any chord, split (like D/F#) or not. If you're a beginner, you can choose the chord from a list, but you can also use the intelligent keyboard to enter the chord as it is written. If this keyboard is a great way to enter chords, it is also very useful to discover and understand how the chords are formed. You can also enter some notes on a neck to find which chords it can be. You can hear how each fingering sounds.

Chords are not all and the app is also shipped with the biggest list of named scales. It analyses and presents them with nice interactive views (scale, score and keyboard). Of course it can also lay down these scales on a neck (with sound). Like for chords, you can even search for a scale from its fingering!

Each scale can be harmonized (decomposed into chords). You can also enter a sequence of chords to find which scale you can use to improvise onto.

You can use one of the hundred tunings shipped with the app, or you can add you own ones, for any instrument, with or without a capo, even with broken strings if you want!

The app uses custom and unique algorithms to generate charts, easily input complex harmonic structures, extract chords from fingerings, determine fingers positions, compute keys of scales, generate chords from scales and find scales that go well with some chords.

For example, Chord! is the right tool in these situations:
• You're a beginner and you want to know how to play easily a D/F# chord;
• One gave you an ukulele and you want to know how to tune it and how to play the G Hawaiian scale;
• You want to know on what scale you can improvise for some chord sequence (and the answer can be different than the Pentatonic minor!);
• While transcripting a song by ear, you've found something and you would like to know which chord is it and other ways to play it;
• You want to experiment this nice open tuning, moreover with a bottleneck;
• Your little sister can't make bar chords and you want to show her how she can do without bars, with three (little) fingers only;
• You want to impress your little sister by showing her how you can play the same chords with two bars!
• You want to understand how this fingering for C13 is actually a fingering for C13;
• You broke a string and want to know how to play some chords without;
• You want to know how Django managed to play with two and a half fingers.

The app fully support left-handed instruments.

    However please make the Favourites feature useful. I want Starred tunings, Chords and Scales to be easily accessible. Maybe by going at the top of the list. Also as a new feature if you could make it play a chord progression so we could solo over it that'd be great too. This app basically has a lot of potential.

    Tried a bunch, including the free version of this. Completely worth it.

    Such a helpful app, I recommend it to all my musician friends. Having virtually every chord or tuning at my disposal has come in handy a number of times. Do yourself a favor and buy the full version.

    Very useful tool. Have used the free version for a while but have decided to purchase the full version. Love the reverse chord look up facility. Trying to learn some beginner jazz standards and this is a great help for looking up chords and constructing them and checking they are right. Would be the icing on the cake if you could enter a chord progression to use as a backing track. Possibly i
