      Hi! You can fix beat errors yourself by going to the edit tab, and using the offset buttons to move the beats around. I hope this helps!

        Hello Laura, we do offer a yearly subscription as well, get in touch with us if you'd like to change your subscription to a yearly one and we'll be glad to help!

        Dear anonymous,

        We don't have an option to cancel your Trial for the following reason: when this Trial expires, it will simply run out–nothing will be automatically renewed and you won't be charged for anything at all. In other words, there's no harm in simply letting the Trial subscription run out on its own. That said, I can still manually remove the Trial subscription from your account if you insist, if you would like to do so, please get in touch with us directly, including the email address on your Chordify account.

        Hello Michael,

        I'm sorry that our algorithm yielded incorrect results for this Johnny Cash song. I've looked into it and the incorrect results stem from the fact that the actual chords themselves are really low in the mix. When playing this style of folk/country, the emphasis of the guitar player's notes are often the root/bass notes of the chords. Now, these notes are clearly audible, and our algorithm (wrongly) defaults to these notes being the chords in root position. Clearly, our algorithm is not perfect yet (we won't claim it is) but some songs simply just lend itself better to automatic chord recognition that others. Songs like this one, which essentially is a lead vocal (melodic), a mandolin (melodic), and a guitar that puts the emphasis on the bass notes of chords to create a sort-of 'waling-bass' line (again, melodic), will definitely trip up our algorithm. Sorry! :(

        Thanks for your comment Andrew Marshall. Did you know that if you sign up to a yearly subscription, you have 14 days to trial Chordify Premium and if it doesn't suit your needs, we will give you a full refund as long as you email us to cancel within 14 days?

        Hi all. We just released Chordify 2.0 and with that we also have a "Summer Offer". If you sign up for an annual subscription you get 50% discount on your first year. Converted to a monthly subscription, that's only 2.7 USD per month!

        The offer is available till 31 August 2015. Check it out: http://chordify.net/premium

        After the one year discount promotional period, you will be charged the standard yearly rate on your renewal date. You can cancel your subscription at any time if you don't want the yearly subscription to automatically renew or be charged again for the service.

          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…

          Thanks for your responses over the last few days guys, we appreciate it!

          Thing is, lyrics are copyrighted content, and getting them to be displayed on your website legally is an absolute legal minefield. We've been jumpoing through legal hurdles for over a year now and the end does *not* appear to be in sight yet.. We hope to eventually be able to offer lyrics to our users, but currently it's unclear when this will be, sorry.

          Thanks for all the feedback, everyone. Unfortunately we are still working out the legalities around displaying lyrics on our website, as lyrics are copyrighted content. We hope to be able to start offering lyrics to our users towards the end of the year.

          Hello Ingrid,

          Thanks for your feedback. I agree that this would be a good compromise to bridge the gap between now and when we finally will be able to provide lyrics along with our chords (it is a legal maze to make this happen, apparently..).

          I'll make sure to reiterate this idea to our developers.

          Hello!

          Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately song lyrics are copyrighted materials and we can not put those on our website. We are looking into ways of incorporating lyrics in the future, but for now the easiest way for users to incorporate lyrics with their chordified chords is to search for a 'lyrics'-version of a song on Youtube.

          Hi Steve Dixon - I am sorry to inform you that Chordify doesn't transcribe lyrics but only the chords of the song. In this case, the "with lyrics" is part of the song title on the site you streamed it from, so it might have made you think that Chordify would provide the lyrics.

            This is an interesting suggestion though at present we have no plans to implement this. However, we do listen to our users, so if lots of people vote for this feature, it could well be put on our to do list!

            Hello there Rose-Marie,

            Thanks for your feedback. Again, I don't think any of our developers are actively working on implementing this. That said, I think we would opt for the more 'generally' recognized roman numeral system, in which the lowercase/uppercase is a tad more descriptive in terms of chord qualities.

            We are working on implementing chord inversions however, and both the NNS and roman numeral system don't display this very elegantly. Our main goal is still to make things as simple and obvious as possible, and while the both the NNS and roman numerals are great for people a little more versed in music theory, I think it doesn't help the majority of our (starting out) user-base.

            Thanks again for the feedback however!

              Hello there,

              We are working on displaying the inversion of the chords. So for instance, when a C chord is played but with an E in the bass, we'll display it ass C/E. This is *some* additional info for bass players but unfortunately we're not actively looking to display the actual bass line if the notes are not part of the chord played themselves.

              Thanks for your feedback!

                Hello there,

                Regarding your initial post: simply clicking anywhere on the page will make this box disappear.

                Regarding your second post, we're currently working hr on bringing lyrics to Chordify, the initially planned release date was May but unfortunately we hit some more legal hurdles so the release date has been pushed back by at least 2 months :(.

                Thanks for your feedback!

                    Hello,

                    Thanks for your suggestion/request. All the songs you Chordify, are automatically added to your 'History' list. You can access this list (a.o.) when you click on 'MY MUSIC PROFILE'. You can remove a song from your list by clicking on the 3 vertical dots onthe right-hand side right next to the heart symbol. This will open a menu which will allow you to delete a song form your list.

                      Thanks for the replies guys, I'll start bothering our developers about this and I'll post an update when I know more!

                      Hello all,

                      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?

                            You can change the language of the chords at https://chordify.net/user/account (user required)
                            Also, the chord language is based on your browser language, not on your location.

                              We agree, the bass note (or chord inversion as it is also sometimes called) is very useful information. After some investigation, it appears this would be a very large undertaking. We have however been working on this and we hope to implement this soon. Stay tuned!

                              Hey, thanks for your comment. This concept is definitely still being discussed at the office. We have just released a new algorithm that performs a let better at harmonic detection, and detecting the root notes of the chords was a part of this new algorithm; I think we are almost at a place where we can accurately detect (with high certainty) the correct root note of the harmonic context. That said, I have a feeling this idea is now put on the back-burner after finishing our investor campaign, our main focus is currently to update our iOS app and start development on an Android app.

                              I will definitely keep nudging our developers' shoulders and remind them of this idea on a weekly basis for the upcoming time, as I agree it's a valuable idea to many musicians out there (including myself!).

                              Hi Vic Lobo - thank you for your question. We do hope to implement soon but we are currently working on the development of the Chordify app which is taking priority and is due for release soon, so we don't have a target implementation date as yet.

                                Thank you for your comment. Currently, we offer chords for Guitar, Ukelele and Piano. Saxophone is–traditionally speaking–not a harmony instrument, therefor we can not specifically create chord diagrams for this instrument.

                                  Thank you for your message! Please know that we definitely agree with your sentiment. We are still working hard on developing these algorithms; do keep in mind that chord extensions open up a whole world of interpretation (is it an Am7 or C6, and why? (context!)) and harmonic complexity!

                                    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.
                                    --
                                    This feature is scheduled to be released within the next 2 weeks–we’re still dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s, hang in there a little longer, guys!

                                    Hi Sarnico Liverani, yes we do plan to implement these soon too! We're working on this at the moment and you'll all be informed when this goes full steam ahead!

                                    In response to Anonymous comment on April 16, we have already implemented the ability to add major, minor and dominant 7ths and suspended 4ths in the chord edits feature.

                                    AdminChordify (Chordify - Tune into chords!, Chordify) supported this idea  · 

                                    René, thank you for your feedback. We agree completely that it would be great to support different chord voicings and chord inversions. However, as you might have noticed, for a fair amount of songs even transcription at the major/minor level still not good enough. We are currently working hard on improving our chord transcription algorithms. When we have improved the transcription for simple major and minor chords, adding common chord additions (sevenths etc.) and chord inversions will be logical next step.

                                      Thanks for your idea. We have no current plans to implement such a feature as this would severely reduce the chord window size for smaller screens.
                                      However, have you checked out the chord diagrams button (4th in from the left on the chords page)? This will bring up all the diagrams for the chords of the song that you are on and can also be printed out free of charge so you can refer to these while you are playing.

                                      We are about to release the Chordify app which will have an improved diagram view although we can't reveal yet how it will look. We also intend to roll this out to the web version but this is still in development.

                                        Thank you for your idea. This is something we have looked at but have no immediate plans to implement. However, for a taste of Premium, why not check out our demo? Or buy a Chordify Premium credit to use on one song? That way, you can experience the service without committing yourself to a subscription. Also note that if you sign up to an annual subscription and it’s not for you, if you let us know within 14 days, we will cancel the subscription and refund the payment.

                                        To try the demo, just copy and paste this into your browser window: https://chordify.net/chords/kensington-home-again-official-video-kensingtonband

                                          Thank you for your considered feedback – certainly not crazy. These are all good ideas. Right now we’re working on improving our algorithms from base level so we’re expecting that in the near future the chord extractions will dramatically improve. However, we will be keeping an eye on things and should this not happen as quickly as anticipated, may well decide to implement some of these ideas!

                                          Thanks for your feedback on Ten Foot Tall. If you could rate this song using the star rating on the Chordify page, that would be great in helping us develop our algorithms to improve chord accuracy.
