Chord writing software

Post by Scouser » August 14th, 2015, 4:51 am

I have been searching everywhere to try and find the software that was used to create the chord diagrams here on the fret noise site, but can't seem to find it. I even emailed site, but nobody got back to me, any help would be much appreciated.

Hi there

And a belated welcome to Guitar Noise.

The chord diagrams that you link to, as well as many of the notation and tablature here at Guitar Noise are done on Finale software. What I do is to create the chords directly in Finale and then I export just the diagram as a TIF file which is used to create the image on the page.

Hope this helps.

I wrote a web app that makes chord charts that I use for myself. They look different than the ones you pointed too but maybe I can help you with the chords you need? Feel free to PM me.

Try this:

It's a work in progress. I developed it for my own use and welcome others to try it. Oh, yeah, it's free.
