I suggest you ...

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.

    Great effort to date!
    Follow up question to Admin's Sep 26, 2017 post "...we are working to implement the ability to insert them(chord edits) manually using our new chord edits feature."
    Have these edits been implemented? I'm not able to add/concatenate some chord qualities eg. A#m(Maj7) or G6sus2 (only Gsus2 is possible). A#Dim7 can only be written as A#Dim or a plain G6 can only be added as GMaj6. ~ thanks in advance! Brian B

    I see a comment from the Support team written in 2017, stating that manual edits would be coming in two weeks. I do not see manual edits for augmented chords for example.

    The issue here is that your algorythm is fuck-up, it's not just chords extensions but too much time the nature of the chord himself, how many time I can see a poor minor chord mistaken by a major7 chord, that's not even helpful. I don't even want to be at the place of a beginner who's looking for a song, the poor guy's gonna turn crazy, you cannot play a song with the right chord with this website. I'm not a member but I lost to many of my time because of you, I've too many student who's sending me chordify link and I'de never ever find a good retranscription here. At this price that's a shame, you can do better with simple prog like transcrib.

    Witam Szanownych Właścicieli Programu Chordify . Wielu muzyków i nie tylko muzyków z wielką chęcią korzystało by z programu- Chordify w Polsce, z całym szacunkiem ,w języku polskim. Wiele osób nie zna jezyka ,angielskiego czy też niemieckiego, dlatego też ,dużo tracą Polacy jak też, Wspaniali Ludzie, co ten program opracowali i mogli by czerpać zasłużone duże pieniądze. Dlatego mam pytanie do Szanownych Autorów programu Chordify czy zechcieli by poszerzyć, też swój program,- na tłumaczenie jeszcze dodatkowo w innych językach miedzy innymi też,Polski. Pozdrawiam Z POWAŻANIEM Stanislaw - grający wielbiciel muzyki z całego Świata

    I was looking at Jorja Smith. On my mind. There were quite a few chord changes missing. Listening to the music and watching Chordify animate or watching the squares the timing was different. I would love for someone to really fill in or correct then chording

    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!

  • Paulo Moreira commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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.

  • Robert Grupe commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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.

  • Sarnico Liverani commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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...
