Let me guess – you never could master the guitar because your fingers have never been strong enough, or your nails have been too long to switch between the strings (am I wrong, ladies?). Well, the brilliant guitar software maker Riffstation has a solution for you. The app offers an excellent practice tool to get you started, and even guitar pros can amp up their training.
The online app Riffstation Play will give you the ultimate learning experience, using chords from any YouTube song you wish to play. The app also includes a growing library of 10 million songs with chord patterns. The guys from Riffstation even made an explanatory video to show you how it's done:
Riffstation Play also provides ukulele chords, in case you want to put a boy/girl string band together. The interface is really simple and friendly: while the YouTube video is playing, the chords are displayed in a bar scroll at the bottom of the screen, with a chord diagram on the right.
According to Riffstation, the app uses a chord recognition algorithm that finds “major, minor, and 7th triads with about 85% accuracy in typical rock/pop music.”
The co-founder of Riffstation, Dan Barry, says for TechCrunch, “Not only are we able to provide chords for any version of any song in the world, we also get to collect the data on what songs are most popular within the guitar player community. Furthermore, the fact that our chord recognition is automatic, means that the size of our catalog is limitless. Our index already has over 10 million songs listed.”
Even though the app is still in beta, the Riffstation team is improving the app to make it flawless. If some chords are not right, for instance, users will be able to edit them on the spot.
