NAMM 2007: ChordGenie intelligent chord finder for guitarists

Mobile phones, NAMM 2007

phonechordfinder.jpgInigma Media has released their ChordGenie guitar chord finder that works with any Java-enabled mobile phone.

It features over 15,000 chords, and offers a much faster way to finding chords than using a book. Chords can be found in standard or alternate tuning, in any position on the fret board. The display shows each chord and its fingering. Slash and power chords are also included. It can be customised for both left and right-handed players, and for the guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, and tenor guitar.

The software also includes a metronome, pitch pipe tuner, and a songbook feature allowing users to bookmark chords.

The Chord Builder function allows users to build up their own chords, and can act as a great educational tool.

It costs just £4.99 and can be downloaded over the air or to a PC. A trial version is available at
