Fret not fellow songwriters; the tool for fast songwriting is here! With this app you can write your own songs without having to be a theory expert!

Built on a custom chord library, this innovative tool allows you to capture, write, and plan out all of your songwriting ideas.


• Spark Your Creativity & Beat Songwriter's Block
Break out of your creative block and unlock your ultimate jam out with chord family magic. Use the "Quick Chords" feature and the app will give you 14 random chords to test out. And guess what? It's powered by chord families so no matter how you mix and match them, your progressions will be off to a solid start!

• Stay Organized
Chords, notes, lyrics, and recordings are neatly packaged together. Magical Pick™ wants to make sure you never lose that perfect sound or the ideas with it.

• Write By Sound
Our custom progression builder allows you to hear the chords as you build your song so that you can easily capture the sound you are after, even if your guitar is not with you.

• All 24 Key Options
Enjoy exploring and learning how to play in different keys. We have 6000+ chords from all 21 types, not just the majors, minors, and 7ths.

• Efficient Songwriting
Tap on the chords to hear what they sound like first. You will save loads of time chasing your sound when you don’t have to worry about playing the chords that would not have worked. If you like a chord, swipe it to your progression! From there you can also tap to hear, re-order, remove, duplicate…whatever works best for you to capture your idea.

• Learn Your Chords
Covers are fun, but the reward comes from making your own masterpiece. We allow you to see and hear how each chord should be played.

Find a great chord progression

Music gut ,

Great but

I really like everything about this app—its an insanely easy way to write songs. But my one complaint is that once you pick a key for your song, it confines you to just the relative chords for that key. For example, I really want to do An Asus2 chord to a B major but I can’t cause the song is in D. Fix plz?

Developer Response ,

Hey there Music gut! Thanks so much for the feedback, it's helpful for us to know where any trouble spots are for users when they use our app so that we can make effective improvements. You'll be happy to hear that pulling in chords from the other keys is something we are currently working on and should be available with our next update :)

Pretty nifty once you figure it out

Kind of clunky and I know it’s coming soon but I would really love the ability to change keys in a song and use chords from outside the key.

Still I think this will do wonders for my efficiency.

Developer Response ,

Thanks so much for the review Guitarmiller9! Happy to hear that you're experiencing those benefits to songwriting efficiency :) You are also correct, that ability will be coming with this next update and we're excited to hear how people interact with it. Happy songwriting!
