*** THIS PROJECT IS STILL VERY MUCH IN ALPHA ***johnraff made me do it.so, this is the 'very alpha' version of Gchords!, the guitar-counterpart of Chords! (which is for piano).this one turns out to be a lot harder than the piano, because you have to consider hand-placement and the fact that you have only 4 fingers and all that stuff on a guitar.
I'm looking for a ''guitar amp'' (like guitar rig or amplitube) program for android, but didn't found it...
so I'm trying to share this wish for a solution.
I don't believe that no one had the idea of develop this kind of app.
Chords! is a CLI piano reference built in Python+Curses. it allows you to select a root-key and then a chord for that. the program then displays the separate notes from the chord, as well as the pianokeys to play (on a cute tiny virtual piano!).
The surprisingly small and light Jamstik is, in short, one of the coolest things I’ve seen at CES Today. It is a MIDI guitar that is actually a musical controller. By playing and plucking the strings you can play music using synthesized sounds and it recognizes chords, notes, and nuances including bends and hammers.
As TechCrunch’s resident guitarist/horrible guitarist, I enjoy apps like Capo. The $29 program allows you to “reverse engineer” any song in your iTunes library, allowing you to play along by marking out your own tablature, playing the chords the app senses in the music, or by looping and slowing down tricky parts of the song.
How does it work?
