Chord fingering

Found under: Settings > Song actions > Chords > Chords

Guitar chords (native)
Piano chords (transpose)

Displaying chord diagrams can be added as a page button action.

Chord diagrams can be shown for the chords found in your song. OpenSongApp is able to display most chord diagrams for the following instruments:

  • Guitar

  • Ukulele

  • 4 and 5 string banjo

  • Cavaquinho

  • Mandolin

  • Piano

When a song is set to use a capo, the chord fingering page allows you to display the native or the capo chords by the simple click of a button. When displaying piano/keyboard chords, the capo text is replaced by a transpose number.

Any custom chords saved with your song will also be displayed here.

You can listen to a chord by clicking on the diagram.
