  1. 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

    • Enable chord transposition and capo suggestions on ipad and iphone - it only works on PC at the moment

      Im a premium customer and a beginner guitarist and find the capo suggestions and transpositions really helpful, but there is no tab or ability to do this on my ipad. Is there a way to enable this functionality on apple devices?

      • 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.

            Hey! Chordify is a great resource! Thank you! Would you consider adding support for vimeo links? http://vimeo.com/30423776

            • 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):

                • What chords are it actually "finding"...

                  I get that it's a beta, but I played around with it and I'm not quite sure if the chords are coming from instruments or singing, especially when there's silence in the song and chords are shown to be playing. I figured one song it was picking up the bass, but later in the song it wasn't the bass chords anymore. It would be amazing if this program worked right, but now I'm just kind of confused.

                    Dear Laura (and 1 other supporter),
                    Thank you for your feedback. The chord recognition in Chordify is fully automatic and our algorithm does not “listen” to one instrument in particular. Hence, the chords are based on all instruments sounding at the same time. I’ll see whether I can write something about this on the about-chordify-page any time soon.

                  • Subdivide Measures

                    I am using Chordify to help transcribe and notate music. Seeing what goes in a certain measure is helpful. But what would be SUPER helpful, is if you could divide each of the bars in the measure into 4 bars themselves then show each bar highlighted as the song plays. This will help notate the 16 8 notes etc. So basically each measure would have 16 bars of its own and each of those bars would light up as the song plays.

                    • 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"..

                          • Add an optional 3 second delay after hitting play

                            this way we have a chance to get on the guitar, so we can hit that first chord.

                              Dear Stephen, thank you for your feedback. I think this is a useful idea. We’ll consider implementing it. By the way, are you aware that you can use the spacebar for starting or stopping playback? This makes controlling the site easier when holding a guitar.

                            • 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

                                  Ability to save a favorite edited song and then next time the song is played out of My Music Profile it would be the edited version.

                                  • Export chords table to Excel (.xlsx file) for further editing

                                    Export chords-table to Excel sheet (.xlsx file) to get more "EDIT" possibilities like grouping chord to lines and blocks,
                                    cooperate with singers: organize lines to fit the songs lines, adding comments, Add playing instructions, Titles etc.
                                    ALL is needed in order to produce an enhanced "chart" for a song and can be achieved easily using "Export to Excel" feature.

                                      • New Chords

                                        I wanted to be a premium customer but will not do it until the chords habe options such as: add2, (add9), (b9), 11, 13, 7(b9), sus9 and 5 altered.
                                        Having that in the system I know I will not mind to be correcting it or adding things.
