ChordAid can help you learn how to play simple and complicated chords including ones used in jazz music.
It supports instruments with 3 to 6 strings in standard or custom tunings.
In addition to the usual chord shapes, ChordAid lets you choose among more difficult ones having two barres and big stretching between the fingers.
It is possible to display, arrange, compare and practice several different chords at once. They may be the chords of a song or different variations of the same chord.
You can mark individual chord shapes as favorites. Then you can switch to a display mode that shows you favorite shapes only. In this way you can build a chord library of your own.
Here are some other functions and capabilities:
• Supports left handed players
• Supports slash chords and chords with fixed highest note
• Can be used to translate chords from one instrument to another
• Can play individual chords in three different styles
• Supports drag-and-drop of shapes to other applications
It is possible to configure which intervals may be excluded from a chord. This is suitable when there is a separate bass instrument or when trying to play more complicated chords on an instrument with three or four strings. There are options to limit how many intervals to exclude at most and how many times a tone may repeat at most in a shape.
Using ChordAid you can also find the possible names of a chord by selecting the frets you have played on a virtual fretboard.
