Chorducopia is like the PC, Mac or Linux version of that trusty tattered chord notebook in your guitar case—only better. When you are writing and you have that perfect sound in your head, but can’t quite translate it to your fingers, Chorducopia can help.
With over nine-hundred chords hand-diagrammed and recorded in every key, Chorducopia offers the songwriter or student access to the essential elements of songwriting.
Browse through chords, filter them by key or a variety of other methods, or search for just the one you are looking for—then listen to them. Chorducopia can show you chords related to what you have found for that extra bit of inspiration.
Care has been taken with every chord, in every key to provide the most useful and accurate representation.
And it sounds great too. We have put great attention to detail into the recording of every chord. We offer chord voicings made up from both the notes contained in the chord formula as well as the actual fingered notes as shown in the fretboard diagrams. All recording was done using state-of-the-art equipment and the results can be heard. Instrument, cabinet, reverb, attack and spread of individual notes in the chord have all been carefully selected for the clearest and most useful representation.
We want to make our tools not only the easiest to use, but ones that exemplify their greatest asset. You.
