Description

An extensive chord library with over 250,000 chords!
Find the perfect chords for your songs on all popular music instruments!
Thanks to a specially developed algorithm, Chords Compass will show you chord diagrams with all possible options in all positions on the music instrument of your choice, on keyboard or fretboard. Simply select a key on the left, a chord type in the middle and a chord type addition on the right, and explore the chords with Chords Compass!

This is what our users say about an earlier app that we included in the Chords Compass: “Piano Chords Compass lives up to its name — a truly reliable COMPASS for learning/finding, keyboard/piano chords.
