Show the lyrics of the song
Thanks for this suggestion. It is indeed a useful idea, but difficult to combine with the remainder of the technology on our site. We rely on automatic transcription of the chords from youtube or other audio, but it is not yet possible to automatically transcribe lyrics. If we want to show lyrics, we should get them from some other source. Hence, I do not think we will support lyrics in the near future. However, youtube features a lot of songs with lyrics. If you chordify these you have your synchronised lyrcis on the side.
We are actively looking into ways of incorporating lyrics to our player. More info on this soon!
Unfortunately we are still working out the legalities around displaying lyrics on our website, as lyrics are copyrighted content. We hope to eventually be able to offer lyrics to our users, but it’s unclear when this will be, sorry!
Similar to Ultimate guitar you should have a play along function where lyrics are included. This would be a great incentive for premium customers.
For creation of a chord annotated lyric the playback, after a pause, should occur a couple of bars back from the point that pause was activated. This allows the user to enter key lyrics at strategic points in the chord boxes). The a few words from the lyrics would be enough to annotate the remaining chords offline.
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
this way we can use vocal cues to switch chords.
You could integrate wiki tunes just like spotify does
Thanks for your answer en good luck with the official launch. I'm a fan already.
perhaps a live auto scrolling window somewhere on the page that has only the lyrics on it?...
