Chord settings

Found under: Settings > Song actions > Chords > Chord settings

This page allows you to set up your chord preferences for the app. Options are:

  • Show chords: Applies to Performance and Stage mode and allows you toggle the chord display on or off. This option is also available from the Song display page.

  • Capo fret as numeral: When a song with a capo is set, the app will show the capo information at the top of the screen when a song loads. By default, the fret to use for the capo is shown as a number (1, 2, 3..), but you can choose to replace this with numerals (I, II, III...).

  • Chord display for capo songs: Choose whether to show the capo chords only, the actual chords or both.

  • Autohide capo: The capo icon that displays in the song window can be set to automatically hide after a short time to help keep the song page clear. Tapping anywhere on the screen will always show extra information such as the capo information again.

  • Key preferences: Here you can set your key preferences when transposing. Personally I'd always prefer reading chords in Bb rather than A#, but you can make your own preference here. If you have changed the chord format to European, Bb will be replaced with B and B will be replaced by H to match this format.

  • Preferred chord format: If you always use songs in one chord format, you can switch this on and set your preference. Options are:

      • Standard: C, C#/Db, D, D#/Eb, E, F, F#/Gb, G, G#/Ab, A, A#/Bb, B

      • Euro (B,H): C, C#/Db, D, D#/Eb, E, F, F#/Gb, G, G#/Ab, A, B, H

      • Euro (B, H, -is, -es): C, Cis/Des, D, Dis/Es, E, F, Fis/Ges, G, Gis/As, A, B, H

      • Euro (-is, -es): C, Cis/Des, D, Dis/Es, E, F, Fis/Ges, G, Gis/As, A, Ais/Bes B

      • Solfege: DO, DO#/REb, RE, RE#/MIb, MI, FA, FA#/SOLb ,SOL, SOL#/LAb, LA, LA#/SIb, SI

      • Nashville: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12

      • Numeral: I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII

  • Auto convert songs: If a song is detected as being in a different chord format, the app can try to convert it for you. Use this option with care!
