This powerful app shows you in beautiful detail the numerous ways you can play chords on your guitar. It includes the classic guitar chord shapes, but also the ones that are used less often. You'll be amazed how many different ways you can play the chords of your songs.

The app supports over 50 different chord types. Slash chords are also supported. In total, there are over 7,500 chords.

Swipe a chord diagram with your finger to strum the chord on the guitar. The chord will be strummed according to the speed and direction of your finger.

Do a long press on a diagram to see it bigger.

You discovered an interesting chord on your guitar but you don't know what it's called? You can use our Reverse Lookup tool to find out.

Pick the scale of your choice; the app will show you the diatonic chords for that scale.

Create rich chord sheets with the chords of your choice. Save your work to a file. Export your chord sheets to PDF.

Interested in alternate tunings? You're covered. Pick your tuning from our catalog and we'll show you how to play all your chords in that particular configuration. The app supports over 40 different tunings.

You can choose between the english notation (C, D, E) or the fixed-do notation (do, re, mi).
