Chord AI uses recent advances in AI to give you the chords of any song automatically and reliably. You won't need anymore to look for the chords of a song on the web. Chord AI listens to the music played from your device or around you and shows you the chords instantly.

Chord AI can recognize 300 distinct chords, including:
- major and minor
- augmented, diminished, half-diminished, dim7
- 6th, 7th, M7th, 9th, M9th, 11th, 13th
- add9, add11
- suspended (sus2, sus4)
- 7th with suspension (7sus2, 7sus4)
- some other rare chords like 7#5 (7th with augmented fifth)

Chord AI even works offline. You don't need to have an internet connection (unless you want to play a song from YouTube or a streaming service).

How does Chord AI work? Chord AI can find the chords of a song in two ways:
1) Through your device microphone. Any song playing around you, or played by your device, is analysed through your device microphone and the chords of the song are shown in real time. You can go back in time and replay the song together with the chords displayed on a timeline.
2) For audio files that you have on your device or iCloud, Chord AI will process the file in a few seconds to give you all the chords of the song at once

Regarding the 17+ age restriction: This is simply enforced by Apple for any application which lets you browse YouTube videos freely.

Excellent tool for aspiring musicians!

I think I’ve found the missing link. Chord AI completes the gap in my music tool collection. I can quickly find chords for my music. The interface is straightforward and easy on the eyes. It doesn’t get in the way of creativity and allows you to quickly obtain results. I like that this works offline too. I can’t stand apps that don’t function without phoning home. Another great feature are the many ways you can import music for chord analysis. Chord AI definitely has a permanent spot on my phone.

Outstanding! But not Perfect.

This is a great app. Really helps narrow down the chords, and is great way to get a “feel” for chord progressions, but I can’t say it’s “perfect”. However, my guess is that is just where the state of the technology is at this point. I’m amazed at what it can do already, but will wait for more advanced tech to get to the next level. There’s a couple small picky things when it comes to the looping that I’d like to see improved as well. Have used the free version for a few weeks, and just sprung for the paid version a couple hours ago, so I will wait to hold off judgement on some of the paid features. I definitely recommend for anyone trying to figure out songs that are not easily available in tab form already. It has saved me hours of work!

Absolutely amazing app!

This app is super helpful. I just started learning guitar and this app has been helping me learn chords and and playing songs I enjoy. The only thing I would say, which is why I'm giving 3 stars, is when I'm recording a long song and my brightness is all the way up I get image burn from the tiny scrolling bars at the top. This happened once and I was so scared it broke my phone forever. I ended up having to use one of those image burn videos to get rid of it. I am on the iPhone XR if that helps. Not sure what kind of screen it has. It could really ruin someones phone if used too much. So now I just make sure to turn my brightness down and I haven't had a problem since. Other than that, its an amazing app! Always accurate and has helped me tremendously.
