Gibson.com recommended 7 Chords as one of the "five most essential iPhone applications for musicians"!
7 Chords was recently featured by Apple on the iTunes store front page in "New and Noteworthy".
"If you’ve always wanted to improve your knowledge of guitar chords or music theory, look no further than 7 Chords." - Jonah Bayer, Gibson.com
"Nowhere can you find [the chords] laid out in a simpler, more straight-forward way than with 7 Chords. Plus, it’s only a buck ninety-nine." - Georges Papas, appcraver.com
"I have just reveived my bachelor's degree in jazz performance. I have used many other chord finders over the years and none have really been this good." - Stringsalive20, User Review
"I've been playing for 20 years. This is by far the best learning aid I have ever used. Great job!" - Freddy47, User Review
7 Chords is a comprehensive library of guitar chords for your iPhone that is suited for beginners as well as for intermediate guitar players.
Unlike most other programs 7 Chords uses the clear and understandable tab notation you already know from your guitar book / fingering chart. Picking a chord is very easy: just pick the base tone and variety of the chord on the pick-wheel, then select the voicing by sliding through the chord pages.
7 Chords shows chord name, the frets to play, the fingers to use (including information like barré) and also the actual tones played. The chord dictionary contains more than 1500 of the most common guitar chords for your electrical or acoustic guitar.
Supported chord varieties are: sus2, sus4, 5, +, 6, 7, 7sus4, o7, 7b5, 7+5, 7b9, 7#9, maj7, 9, 11, 13, m, m6, m7, m7b5, mMaj7, m9, +9, maj9, Cmaj7b5.
Simply tap or double tap the chord to hear it on your iPhone speaker.
What's New in Version 1.6
- Fixed a bug that made the app crash if the favorites list was empty
- Added support for Retina 4-inch display
A great App.
This is a great tool for those who struggle to play certain chords on the guitar. It's very easy to use, intuitive, and the sound of the chords, when played is clear and has a good quality. The application is intuitive to use and very helpful, especially when alternate chord fingering is sought.
A nice addition would be if a chord name could be derived when fingering positions are defined.
Still using this App frequently.
Five star app
I use this guitar app all the time. It not only help me finding difficult or seldom used chords but helps me use chords in different positions on the fret board expanding my vocabulary. This is a perfect app if you are like me and play at a novice level. Great job!
Practically every chord variation you can think of AND when you tap the notation you hear how it should actually sound. It's an invaluable reference to a novice like me.
