      Want the ability to search for songs by original key and then number of chords.
      Example: Key of G, and then further option to filter for songs that use less than 4 chords.

          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…

          Or add people to add them - although possibly copyright considerations?

            Yes, some chords are incorrect, so you can edit them.
            Need to clarify what you mean be bass notes (musical notation, tab, or something else)?
            There are different capabilities between 4 and 5 string basses, and notes can be played at multiple positions - on different strings and neck positions.
            Guitar rhythms and note aren't specified either, but knowing the chord you can determine your own.

              Yes, should support Nashville Number System.

                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!

                Agreeing with others: automated transcription is going to be difficult, but at least provide the ability for users to manually include Bdim, etc.
                Then after some common cord types/extensions, I can understand that there might be come concern about allowing free-input text, but you can utilize server-side white list validation to keep malicious content out.
