The basic idea...

"The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...
...The Open Source pages exist to make this case to the commercial world."    - Introduction to Open Source -

* Chord Reader

market download Search the web for guitar chord charts to your favorite songs. Then, Chord Reader will automatically analyze the chords and allow you to transpose, add a capo, etc. It's great for guys like me with a limited vocal range.

You can also click a chord to see the suggested guitar fingering. Multiple fingerings are shown, with the most common one first.

Additionally, you can import your own chord charts into Chord Reader. Simply copy the files you want (in plain text format) from your computer to the "/sdcard/chord_reader" folder.

This is free and open-source software, so any bug reports or contributions are appreciated.

Rock on, fellow Android guitarists!
