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!
If this feature request gets a lot of votes, we might consider implementing more diagrams.
As per our comment, please update your idea with the specific tuning.

I am currently looking for a product which offers the same features as Chordify. But I am learning to play 5 string banjo. So please let me know if you decide to add the banjo to the list of instruments compatible with Chordify.

Add my thumbs up for 5 string banjo
Yes Please 5Sting G
5 string in G is the most common

I said it on one of the mandolin posts, and I'm saying it again here. You have a lot of awesome Americana music on here, but the only traditional instrument you support is the guitar. I would think to see mandolin and banjo on here before ukulele. Especially mandolin, since the tuning and positions would be the same as a violin/fiddle.
Just subscribed today so forgive the early comment but as a long standing banjo player I do accept there are a number of tunings possible but the predominant one is definitely 5 string Open G.. as we banjo players say (thank the Lord for G!!) 4 and 6 string banjos are not that common but I duly accept they exist but then what about the myriad of possible guitar tunings and 12 string etc etc..
Anyhow... it is a great piece of software and if you do add banjo I know a ton of people who would appreciate it.

Five strings would be a great start
Thanks for the replies guys, I'll start bothering our developers about this and I'll post an update when I know more!

The standard banjo tuning would be great: https://thingsthatarerectangles.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/standardbanjotuning.png
Thanks for your comments and support for this idea. The main reason this hasn't been incorporated yet is because it appears a lot of 5-string banjo players use varying tunings, and we simply can not support all these different tunings (i.e. where do we draw the line, in terms of supporting different tunings).
Perhaps it would be more worthwhile to vote for a specific 5-string banjo tuning intead?
Banjo 5 strings is absolutely necessary in a Premium account!
Five string is the most popular of banjos.
I'd be willing to buy your premium service and pay for transposing the chords.
please add banjo chord
Or even a way to make custom tunings?
Yes please. Another vote for banjo. Chordify looks amazing.
Alright... Here's one more request for us 5 stringers! Please please please!!!
