Advanced Guitar Chord Generator
| by Jim Cranwell approximately 85,992,192 chords
Everything works exactly the same as other version except the
chord picker and tuner...
In this version you can add anything you want to the chord by clicking individual
(you must know some basic chord structures).
I, III, V are included at start meaning... if you don't have anything checked, the display will show a major chord with the root, third and fifth, when you check one of the boxes it will add or remove as listed below.
Anytime you find a chord you like click "save". When you have all the chords you want click "display" and you'll be able to print or save the page. To start over or make a new page... click "clear" and it will reset and clear all.
You can change anything you want in between/during saves but it's best to leave the tuning and righty/lefty the same for every individual page (or else you'll get mixed up). Got it? If you want DADGAD tuning, ...fine, just leave it DADGAD for the whole chord chart display page. Here's a sample chord chart
Any number of combinations is possible up until it becomes an actually impossible chord. (seven different notes?)
-3 : will take out the third and add a lower (minor) third to any chord
-5 : will take out the fifth and add a flat fifth
+5 : will take out the fifth and add an augmented fifth
6(13) : will add the sixth ...(13 later)
(b)7 : will add the flat seventh (usually just called 7th) (any valid 9th, 11th or 13th chord also has a 7th in it)
maj7 : will add the major seventh When you see a chord like "major 13th" or "major 9th" this is what they're talking about.
-9 : will add a diminished 9
9(2) : will add the ninth, that would be considered an "add9" chord.
If you want to play a true "ninth" chord you have to add the (b)7 in the
+9 : will add the augmented ninth (plus nine is same note as minor third, but leaves the third intact)
11(4) : will add an eleventh (the same note as fourth).
In an true "eleventh" chord the ninth and the seventh are also included but
the 5th and 9th or the 3rd and 5th are usually omitted
6(13) : will add the thirteenth (the same note as sixth),
A true "13th" chord includes the... I, III, V, flat VII, IX, XI, XIII
but if you notice there are seven notes ...and that's not going to work
on the guitar so the 5th and the 9th or the 9th and the 11th are commonly omitted
no5 : will take out the fifth
sus(no3) : will take out the third.
Use this along with 11(4) if you want to play a sus4 chord
Use this along with 9(2) if you want to play a sus2 chord
Rd22m334d55a56b77 The display after the fret number...
|| R is the Root, then the exact notes used in the chord.
Here's the whole shebang || R, d2, 2, m3, 3, 4, d5, 5, a5, 6, b7, 7,
That's Root , dim second, second, minor third, third, fourth, dim fifth, fifth, aug fifth, sixth, flat seven (7th), seven (maj7)
If any display in this format has an extra (more than one) 2, 5, or 7 in it, i.e. d22, 5a5, b77, you can usually rule it out.
m33 might actually be something because augmented 9th and minor third are the same notes
example... "C seventh sharp ninth" is a valid chord... C 7th aug9 w3 || Rm335b7
Some Make you own types dim7th : Or just plain "diminished" is the same as clicking... minor, -5, 6(13) half dim : same as minor, -5, (b)7 Tunings: Just click on whatever string you want to change the tuning of then move cursor to and it changes the tuning for that individual string... you can tune the guitar to any possible tuning, you don't even really need the righty/lefty drop down anymore because you can tune it to EBGDAE yourself,
number of chords: 85,992,192 There are...
12 different notes : 638 chords : (that's using ten different things to pick from (combinations..., minor, +5 , -9 , etc.) , not including (sus)3rd or (no)5th and starting with 5 options; (the greatest number/amount of 10 different parts of the chord you can pick without getting an xxxxxx zap, 10!/((10-5)!)5! = 252 then running it down to Zero ) 252 + 210 + 120 + 45 + 10 + 1 = 638 ) ,
12 frets : zero (open) through eleven (12th fret same as open unless using open strings, including open strings would multiply grand total by two or = 171,984,384 chords),
4 stretch's 9 variations : (average out of possible 24, some more, some less, the vary check box changes the vary drop down into a whole 'nother set of variations),
2 ways to string it : (righty, lefty),
13 popular tunings : like other version (Not including all the possible tunings this time... which would be by itself...
12 x 12 x 12 x 12 x 12 x 12 or 12^6 = 2,985,984 tunings).
Multiply everything together and you get...
12 x 638 x 12 x 4 x 9 x 2 x 13 = 85,992,192
