If you went to a music college, everything they will teach you about chord theory would lead you to organize your chords by key. So we did it for you in this app :-)

Fans are saying:
"This is so useful because it is specifically for the guitar! I have other chord generator apps and they are great, but this has already got me thinking about chords progressions in a different way because it uses guitar chord voicings that I wouldn’t usually use. And being able to preview the progression before I even pick up my guitar is genius! Thanks devs for the app that I’ve always needed without even knowing it!"

For the less than the cost of a pizza Song™ App gives you:
• The power to find chords, hear them, see how to play them, & write better songs fast.
• Guitar Chords Organized into their 12 Major and 12 Minor Keys
• A random chord generator that gives you 14 new chords you can write a song with IMMEDIATELY. How cool is that?! Take it a step further & generate 14 chords from one key & use 14 arpeggios from another for the solos!
• The ability to find the lost chords to finish the songs you've been working on for months
•Lyrics, chords, and recordings linked together in one app (the pros love this, no more switching between three apps!)
•The ability to mix major and relative minor keys easily.
•The circle of 5ths out of the realm of theory and into your reality to use NOW.

Overall very solid

This app is something that I have been needing for a while, and it works very well. My only problem with it is that it is guitar specific, so I have to transpose what I'm playing on piano into the correct chords fingerings for the guitar. However, if you are a guitar player looking to write music, This is a very useful app.

Developer Response ,

Thank your kind words. And as time goes by we will apply the chord family concepts to many more instruments.

Great App - Annoying emails

This app is a great tool! I used it for 15 minutes after buying and wrote 2 riffs/ideas using chords I had not seen before. I can see a lot of useful things coming out of this app. I especially appreciate the ability to rearrange chords in the progression and tap to listen to each chord or the entire progression. Very useful.

One annoying thing however is this 15 Days of song I keep getting daily emails about. I may have opted in by mistake so I’m not going to point the finger too hard but it is irritating to get daily emails from an app you just paid for. It’s almost like seeing ads, just not as obnoxious.

Developer Response ,

Thank you buying our app and we are very happy you find it helpful. As far as the emails are concerned please accept this explanation. As part of our learning curve from when we started this venture we received a lot of emails regarding how to use the app and its features so we implemented this email response system and it successfully addressed those issues with our new users. And yes we did ask for referrals because that just good old fashioned business across all business. But it's ok to ignore those emails if you do not find them helpful. They are there to encourage you to write and to explain how to use our app. Peace Uncle Brent 1/4 Founder of Song

Cannot run without profile

Pictures look great. I would love to actually run this app but I can’t get past the profile screen. I’m not creating a profile for this app. If you add iCloud sync support, you can have all of the purported features of syncing across iOS devices without requiring a Facebook login or similar.

I was willing to pay the 10 bucks, but I’m not willing to get pulled into the “free for now but will cost later” subscription model. If there is no way around this, it would nice of you to put a disclaimer that, after paying $10 for this app, you won’t actually be able to use it without creating Yet Another Profile.

Developer Response ,

Hi there! The main reason we opted for a profile creation outside of iCloud is that we want to work across multiple platforms (eg iOS and Android) and didn’t want to have our user’s information spread across different data locations. This was meant to help keep our ability to improve the app flexible and more straightforward if that makes sense. The profile you create with our app, if you decide to not tie it to your social, is just an email and password. There aren’t any other charges or subscriptions in order to operate what you have paid for :)
