GoChords makes it easy to write and to read your songs, for practicing, gigs and jams with other musicians. Anywhere you have the internet, you have GoChords! You can compose and create right on both your desktop computer and your tablet. No more illegible writing on cocktail napkins, matchbook covers and shopping lists!
Tired of hours you have to spend with those little rubber stamps to add chord shapes to your song sheets? We hear you — we were, too, and that's why we created GoChords. GoChords makes it super quick and easy to write song sheets with chord symbols, lyrics and simple notation, all with our drag-and-drop interface.
GoChords enables you to compose for a variety of stringed instruments — guitar, mandolin and 3 different ukulele tunings. You can even change the instrument for your song on-the-fly, which makes it so easy to jam with other instruments.
With GoChords, you're never locked in to the key you write your song in. You can transpose your song at any time, and with just a single click of the mouse (or a tap on your tablet). Very helpful to accomodate a singer's vocal range, or even to challenge yourself to play in other keys.
Our Custom Chord Builder allows you to create your own chord shapes for any instrument, for those personal chord voicings and inversions you may want to include on your songs.
Share you music and enjoy music shared by other GoChords members. You can share with groups that you are a member of, or you can send One to One Shares of your songs to friends via email.
GoChords helps you teachers out there by allowing you to attach an audio track or a video to your song. It gives you a great way to provide a reference to your students for the feel and timing of your song.
Join and form groups, share your music and enjoy music shared by others. Communicate with other players using song commenting and direct messaging.
Put your tabs on your “tab”. (Sorry, we couldn’t resist!) GoChords is a specially-designed with tablets in mind, especially the iPad. You will be able to create and edit songs, and create new custom chords, too. GoChords automatically detects when you're on your tablet, and gives you the optimized version!
GoChords gives you the ability to create songbooks — collections of your songs and songs shared with you. Not only can you choose which songs to place in your songbooks, you can put them in any order you like! Great for gigs, jams, holidays and anything you want!
When viewing GoChords on your tablet device, you can turn on the Full-Screen Mode feature, which allows you to hide the interface (tools and buttons) so that you see a full screen of your song! Play away!
We encourage everyone to go-green whenever possible, but hey, sometimes there's nothing as portable as a trusty piece of paper! Our print-friendly song view faithfully reproduces your song and all positioning of chords and symbols for printing and PDFs.
This feature allows you to trigger slow automatic scrolling of your song page, so that you don't have to reach for your mouse or trackpad while you're playing one of your songs. Transport controls allow you to choose the scroll speed, as well as start/stop/pause/rewind the scroll.
