  1. make the PDF's have 8 bars per measure

    hey gang,
    let's ask Chordfy to please make the PDF's have 8 bars per measure.
    I think it will be an incalculably large improvement.

      • Allow appending chord chart with lyrics

        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

        • 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!

          • Continuations chord play

            Currently a chord is played only when a chord changes. This sounds very odd. The chord should also be played for empty squares (where no chord change occurs.)

              • 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?

                  • Horizontal top menu

                    Add an horizontal top menu (Home, my library, etc) from the forums or Customer Feedback, to make the website more "navigable".

                    Love Chordify!
                    Thanks!

                    • 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.

                      • Rhythm to play along to when transposing or change pitch of play back

                        When I use the transpose option (I have upgraded to Premium) it would be nice to be able to mute the now out of key music and not hear the generated chords either since they often don't play at the right time, and just have a basic rhythm beat to follow. I'm also a singer besides a guitarist and would like to practice the songs in the right key for my voice and not hear the out of key music but just my guitar and the beat to keep me in tempo with the displayed chords as I play along…

                          Changing the playback pitch is unfortunately impossible in general (we stream from YouTube, for example, so we can only do what their API allows us too). A clicker rhythm, however, would be possible. If enough users ask for this, we will implement it.

                            • 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):

                              • Integrate with Spotify

                                I have all of my music in Spotify and don't want to upload or find youtube links.

                                Spotify has an api that lets you search and play their songs if you could make an app in the spotify store that uses your chordify technology that would be great!

                                  In response to Mic’s question, we would love to integrate with more streaming services, but this requires a lot of negotiation with the streaming platforms. This is time consuming or might even result in a no-go. That’s why the issue is still marked as under review.

                                  • 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"..

                                            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.

                                            -Update-
                                            We are actively looking into ways of incorporating lyrics to our player. More info on this soon!

                                            -Update- 22/02/2018
                                            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…
