Have you ever tried to figure out what the chords are to your favorite songs? Yamaha's new Chord Tracker app does the hard work for you, and much more! The Yamaha Chord Tracker app for iPhone/iPod touch/iPad helps you practice and perform songs by analyzing the audio song stored in your iOS device and then displays the chord symbols for you.

(1) Easy chord chart display of your favorite songs
Play the chords of the audio songs stored on your iOS device by simply reading the chord sequence extracted by Chord Tracker and shown on the iOS device display.

1. The chords displayed by this application will match the mood of the original song very closely, but may not be an exact match for the original chords used.
2. Songs protected by DRM can not be used in this application.

(2) Customize a song tempo/key and edit chords
The tempo and key can be changed if desired for your practice or performance. You can even edit the chords to make your own arrangement of the song by choosing from two recommended chords or selecting the chord root and chord type.

Works amazing... sometimes


When it allows you to use a song, it works great, does everything you would hope for in an app like this. The huge problem is that the app is only compatible with about one out of every twenty songs in my large iTunes collection. The vast majority of songs are greyed out and labeled “This data cannot be selected.” This includes the songs that I got this app for in the first place. I’m not sure why the compatibility rate is so low, but based on all the five star reviews, I would guess that not many people are having this problem for some reason. Therefore, even though it is useless to me, I give it three stars.

Excellent app, but needs Bluetooth support


This app is so helpful. I can record a band rehearsal and import into the program and there is the chord chart!

The one thing I see that it needs is output to bluetooth speakers for playing along. With any iPhone after 6, you need the dongle to play to speakers and that means you can’t set the device to read while playing. (I like the printout idea also)

Lastly - thank you Yamaha for providing such a useful, accurate app!

Near perfection


I tried several chord recognition apps before I stumbled upon Chord Tracker. I'm amazed at its near perfect record nailing chords and blazing performance. Thank you for making this a free app as it's inspiring me and others to explore a wider range of music styles. As a feature request, I would like to see Ukulele added as an instrument choice. I would totally pay for an in-app add-on for that since I don't own a guitar and am still learning uke chords. Keep up the innovation.
