Show chord extensions
I would like to see sevenths, ninths, augmented and diminished chords, not just the root and the quality of the chord (major / minor).
Dear chord extensions supporters, we agree that this would be a great improvement to chordify. However, the more specific the chords become, the higher the error-rate of the automatic transcription might be. Nevertheless, we believe we can give you some addition chord extensions in the near future and in the meantime we are working to implement the ability to insert them manually using our new chord edits feature.
This feature is scheduled to be released within the next 2 weeks–we’re still dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s, hang in there a little longer, guys!

Very disappointed! I wanted the chords that Brian Setzer plays in Sleepwalk (live) only to find that Chordify only gave me the chords that I knew already. Complete waste of money!

I'm sorry to say that I'm already thinking about cancelling my fresh 1-year subscription right away, if this change doesn't get implemented real soon, guys. At least to allow for manual inclusion of the chord extensions; not being able to do so is really limiting.

Agreeing with others: automated transcription is going to be difficult, but at least provide the ability for users to manually include Bdim, etc.
Then after some common cord types/extensions, I can understand that there might be come concern about allowing free-input text, but you can utilize server-side white list validation to keep malicious content out.

So based on this comment, Chordify only figures out the root and if the third is either major and minor. Most people can figure out roots - and MAJ/min."
"Most people" can do that??? Really???
No, Rob, being rather more realistic, "most people" don't even know what a "root" is in that sense of the word.

I agree with the comments! I use the app now as a back-up for when I am having problems transcribing by ear - and really use use it otherwise to edit and then produce chord charts which are handy or my needs. It would be amazing if its recognition were more accurate. I can't seem to find 6th chords in the editable chord drop-down, or any more complex extensions than 7ths - c'mon guys, could we please have some 9ths at least in the drop-down? Thank you! :)
Yes, would be extremely useful to add chord extensions, particularly for jazz tunes. Chordify should not hold back if the algorithms exist, with the caveats that certain extension, shown in a different font or color, are very tentative.

What an wonderful and eazy learning app!
Hi Sarnico Liverani, yes we do plan to implement these soon too! We're working on this at the moment and you'll all be informed when this goes full steam ahead!
Is it also planned to add dimished and half-dimished chords? And the extensions, especially 9, or b9? It would be great if you give the possiblity to also add slash chords (e.g D/F# is a very used one to go to G).
Of course, in edit mode. It is not necessary to "chordify" those chords...
Chordify is the best.

I'm finding this limiting. I would like this even if I have to manually edit them...
Yes this would be a great idea! I hope you do this ;)
In response to Anonymous comment on April 16, we have already implemented the ability to add major, minor and dominant 7ths and suspended 4ths in the chord edits feature.
When is it planned the implementation of the edit feature? The one including new chords extensions...

amzing and very helpfull beyond my expectations
I think the most important thing and most urgent is to give users the possibility to insert 7, min7, maj7, dim. Then it would be nice to have the 4sus, or 9, etc...
The idea of the software is amazing, but as of now, you cannot yourself edit a basic blues (c7 - f7 - c7 - etc...). This is the very basic of rock music...
None of the sus4 chords are noted on this song, and the the two B`s, is really B minors.

Looking forward to being able to annotate/edit with more specific chords. I often need to annotate power chords as with the notation A5, etc.
