The title pretty much says it all.

I am looking for a web application to display fingering charts for chords on the guitar that

  • has all the chords (including advanced jazz chords) with

    • alternative chord symbols
    • alternative fingerings
  • [optionally] can do a reverse lookup

of course it should

  • be freely accessible
  • have a clean modern gui.

It should be intended to serve as an interactive encyclopedia.

  • The way you've asked this question makes it very tough to answer. Mainly because of the subjective nature of your requirements. It may be helpful to give the use case for which you'd like to use the tool? – GnarlyDog Feb 23 '14 at 19:36

The one that I found is a Flash application called chordbook.

It provides diagrams for

  • chord types shown below together with
  • their inversions (for alternative positions).

However, it does not fit the requirements in terms of

  • alternative chord symbols / names and
  • reverse chord finding didn't work for Em9 (X7577X).

Vex Fretboard is a web application that displays guitar tab notation.

If you are so inclined, the code for it.

I have not explored it much, so I am not sure if it fits all of your requirements.

It is fairly new, so there isn't much content posted on it at the moment, but something like this should give you a good idea of what it is about.

  • Thanks, this software looks quite interesting, but it is very different from a chord diagram encyclopedia. It seems to be a pure notation software, that renders vextab (another notation, syntactically related to ChordPro) to music sheets / tablatures. Please correct me, if I've overlooked something. – Jens Piegsa Feb 24 '14 at 9:06
  • It can produce chord diagrams (now?) vexflow.com/vexchords – paulzag Nov 21 '19 at 1:43

Chord.Rocks is a free website that works on any browser/device.

It will show alternative chord names and symbols and display alternate finger positions. Also, you can enter any alternate tuning or add a capo.

It has a reverse chord lookup feature. Also with alt tuning and capo options.
