Chord Tracker - Amazing app that analyzes your music and shows you the chords!

Have you ever tried to figure out what the chords are to your favorite songs? Well, search no further because now Yamaha’s new Chord Tracker app does the hard work for you!

The Yamaha Chord Tracker app for the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad helps you practice and perform songs by analyzing the audio of any song stored on you iOS device and displaying the chord symbols for you.

As a performer, it is great to have a tool like this to help me transcribe new songs where the sheet music isn’t available. Or, if I’m having a hard time hearing the “quality” of the chord (major, minor, 7ths, etc.), Chord Tracker helps me solve the mystery chords.

We had Mike, from our marketing team, give Chord Tracker a test drive using music from our Custom Audio Backing Tracks:

Once the song is analyzed, you can change the tempo or key of the song. You can even edit the chords to make your own arrangement of the song by choosing from two recommended chords or selecting the chord root and chord type.

Download Chord Tracker for FREE on the iTunes App Store, try it out and let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
