Songs lets you quickly capture the essense of your chord arrangement for a song by adding chord voicings to song lyrics. In a few clicks, add or change chord diagrams. Drag and drop diagrams to copy or move them to a different location. Songs plays the notes as you enter the chords and automatically suggests chord names and fingerings. When you are done, make a beautiful print out or export to PDF.
Songs also has a composition module (an in-app purchase) which will help you create interesting guitar chord progressions and discover new sounds. It’s special version of ChordMate, our other app, that is integrated with the Songs editor.

What's New in Version 1.6.4
ignore accidental micro drags when editing chord diagrams
Excellent but limited to 6 frets
I want more like 12 frets, 6 is not enough. When you use open strings and “stretch chords” 6 isn’t enough. I would also like to edit the fingering #s. The bar option is a great feature but doesn’t do what I need. Think of a song like 4+20 that starts on the 12th fret (G string) played with an open 6th string (drop D).
That said it’s amazingly easy to arrange chords with lyrics. I also use it to chart harmonies for singers in the band who know enough guitar to figure out chord diagrams. This is why I would like to edit the fingering #s, because I can use them to represent voices 1,2,3,4 instead. I haven’t figured out how to set the default font yet, hope that’s possible, if not please add to next update.
