Chord details

The chord details screen shows you next to a large chord diagram with further information about a chord and the chord gallery with all fingerings. It shows the structure of the chord including its notes and the formula. Optional notes of a chord are marked in red.

Please note that you can change the information on the chord diagram:

  • Nothing
  • Notes (Settings) Note names according to your settings
  • Notes (Theory): Note names according to the music theory
  • Intervals
  • Relative notes
  • Fingering

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).
