The chord details screen shows you next to a large chord diagram with further information about a chord. For example, the structure of the chord including its notes and the formula.
Please note that you can change the information on the chord diagram:
- Notes (Settings)
- Notes (Theory)
- Relative notes
The chord diagram shows you also if it is a favored fingering. It’s yellow, if the fingering is favored by yourself. It’s blue, if the fingering is obeying the patterns of the CAGED system.
The statistic gives you a quick overview of the preferences of a fingering:
- Fingering: The fewer fingers needed to grip a fingering, the better. That’s why grips with the fewest fingers needed have the biggest swing in the statistics.
- Difficulty: The number of fingers is not all that determines the difficulty of a grip. Among other things, the distance between the fingers, the frets to be spanned, whether it is a barré chord, whether strings have to be damped… Again: The easier a fingering is to finger, the greater the swing in the statistics.
- Sound: The same applies to the sound: The better a chord sounds, the greater the swing in the statistics.
You can sort the fingerings by these criteria (settings).
