  1. Detect and show bass note

    It would be very useful to know the bass note that is played with a chord. E.g. C chord played with E as bass note, commonly notated as C/E.

      We agree, the bass note (or chord inversion as it is also sometimes called) is very useful information. After some investigation, it appears this would be a very large undertaking. We have however been working on this and we hope to implement this soon. Stay tuned!

    • Provide offline access

      Right now Chordify can only be used online. It would be nice if there was some offline feature, even if only for songs that have already been chordified (online).

      • display the confidence in each chord estimation (eg with a color scale), whenever possible

        This way it is easy to avoid playing the most inconsistent ones

        • Chordify Premium is too expensive; the prices should be lower/cheaper

          I am willing to pay but prices for plan are horrible. Besides there are many more apps that allow you to do the same thing and there are many others that will be available to users for free.

          • Ability to pick out individual notes.

            There's alot of instances in most songs where they play riffs that aren't chords. If the program had the ability to tell you what individual notes are played I think that would be extremely useful.

            Not asking for it to be tabbed out for me, just what notes are used

            Maybe something like

            [Bm Chord] then little notes like BCAD#AGb come after it showing the notes used

            • Five string banjo diagrams

              It would AWESOME to have the option to turn the diagrams into 5 string banjo diagrams.

              Cheers! Great app by the way!

              • Add a line number for chord lines

                Add a line sequence number for chord lines. I copied all chords using screenprint. But it is difficult to aim chords on right sequence without any numbers. Line numbers would be very useful when you have the print option and a user communicates with a friend like "Look at chords in line nn"..

                • Allow appending chord chart with lyrics

                  Allow the user to tap on a chord 'box' and enter a word or lyric. Just a few key words from the complete lyrics would be enough to interpret the unlabeled chord sequence in download form. (I do this using ctrl-b/m in Audacity to add a label)

                  Also a two bar rewind and play would be very useful during playback mode

                      Dear Anonymous,
                      The BPM can be derived automatically from the audio source, and displaying it would make a nice feature. However, this feature has a low priority. We have very limited time, and we believe other features are more important. Please bear with us.

                    • Manually indicate when the youtube song starts

                      Some youtube footage starts with the talking of an artist. Since chordify starts analyzing from the start, it produces some inevitabele nonsense. My suggestion could avoid that, so the first things people see is a adequate chord. Keep on the good work! Jackfish

                          Hello Anonymous, thanks for your suggestion. We’ll definitely take this into consideration; the only downside is, is that banjos can be tuned in such a wide array of tunings, depending on the player, that it’s hard to pick one tuning and have the chord diagram be relevant to all banjo players. Then there’s the issue of there being 4-string, 5-string and 6-string banjos, all with different tunings..

                        • when playing a song we don't need the window cluttered with other songs photos etc. to much going on bar moving. other cd covers moving

                          just like a music score just give me the chords No pics no other songs unless I want to find some Kiss (Keep it simple stupid)

                          • Pay for "Pro" chords

                            It's really hard to get all chords right for some songs, so, one way of making musicians get some money, and get more users with better chords, is to a Music Request system, where someone can pay like 5 premium points, and have one "pro reviewer" reviewing the music chords.

                            That would be cool :)

                            • new, useful and comfortable interface

                              Although this new version are new and might more comfortable (personal idea), I think that you should have a bigger displaying area. It is quite small to read the lyric showing in the video.

                                    In response to Mic’s question, we would love to integrate with more streaming services, but this requires a lot of negotiation with the streaming platforms. This is time consuming or might even result in a no-go. That’s why the issue is still marked as under review.

                                    Currently a chord is played only when a chord changes. This sounds very odd. The chord should also be played for empty squares (where no chord change occurs.)

                                    • Tonic finder / chord placement

                                      The piano sheets are currently not very useful because no-one plays the chords this way.

                                      For example if you are in C, you play G (dominant) below C. But if you are in G, you will probably play C (subdominant) below G.

                                      Given the song does not change the tonic in-between, it is not hard to find the tonic chord: Test every chord which appears and count how often its IV, V and vi appears.

                                      This way it would also be possible to give the _real_ chords instead of enharmonic equivalents.

                                      • Add chord scales for use when improvising

                                        For an example see the following:

                                        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExEBNJ2fCCI

                                        This helps people who are learning to improvise.

                                        For in depth (free) look at how to use chord scales, see the Coursera course from Gary Burton (one of the most accomplished vibraphone players in the world):

                                        • Make sure tempo changes in a song are correctly tracked

                                          When the tempo of a song changes (e.g. gets faster towards the end) chord placement in the grid tends to drift getting progressively miss-aligned if the tempo continues to change. See the following for an example of this effect... http://beta.chordify.net/chords/the-penny-black-remedy-come-back-when-you-have-more-ambition-mrseventhcat

                                          In this song the time signature stays the same but the tempo of the song increases for each cycle of the chord progression. In this case I would suggest that the chord changes remain in the same vertical alignment in the grid but the beat indicator should progress through the grid faster as it keeps up with the increasing tempo.
