Gibson.com recommended 7 Chords as one of the "five most essential iPhone applications for musicians"!

7 Chords was recently featured by Apple on the iTunes store front page in "New and Noteworthy".

"If you’ve always wanted to improve your knowledge of guitar chords or music theory, look no further than 7 Chords." - Jonah Bayer, Gibson.com

"Nowhere can you find [the chords] laid out in a simpler, more straight-forward way than with 7 Chords. Plus, it’s only a buck ninety-nine." - Georges Papas, appcraver.com

"I have just reveived my bachelor's degree in jazz performance. I have used many other chord finders over the years and none have really been this good." - Stringsalive20, User Review

"I've been playing for 20 years. This is by far the best learning aid I have ever used. Great job!" - Freddy47, User Review

7 Chords is a comprehensive library of guitar chords for your iPhone that is suited for beginners as well as for intermediate guitar players.

Unlike most other programs 7 Chords uses the clear and understandable tab notation you already know from your guitar book / fingering chart. Picking a chord is very easy: just pick the base tone and variety of the chord on the pick-wheel, then select the voicing by sliding through the chord pages.

7 Chords shows chord name, the frets to play, the fingers to use (including information like barré) and also the actual tones played. The chord dictionary contains more than 1500 of the most common guitar chords for your electrical or acoustic guitar.

Supported chord varieties are: sus2, sus4, 5, +, 6, 7, 7sus4, o7, 7b5, 7+5, 7b9, 7#9, maj7, 9, 11, 13, m, m6, m7, m7b5, mMaj7, m9, +9, maj9, Cmaj7b5.

Simply tap or double tap the chord to hear it on your iPhone speaker.
