About Chordious Web

Chordious Web is built using the core functionality of the Chordious Application written by Jon Thysell. This version does not contain the full functionality of that application.

I highly recommend that you download the full free version of Chordious at: http://chordious.com/ Versions are available for Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux. The full souce code is also available for download as well.

Please keep in mind that both Chordious and Chordious Web build chord diagrams based upon the rules of music theory. The application may generate some chord shapes that are theoretically correct, but are not finger friendly.
