How does it work?
Just search for any song or artist and Riffstation will give you the chords for any song synced with the YouTube video! You can view the chord diagrams in sync with the music for guitar, ukulele and piano.
Where do the chords come from?
Riffstation uses an automatic chord recognition algorithm to "listen" to the music and figure out the chords for you!
How accurate are the chords?
The chord recognition algorithm detects major, minor and 7th triads with about 85% accuracy in typical rock/pop music. The chord positions shown are in root position only. The chords will always be detected and shown in the actual key the song was recorded in. If the song is in difficult key to play in, you can use the capo tool and play in any key you like with a capo on your guitar.
Can I edit chords which are not correct?
Not right now, but we are working on it!
Are there any advanced features?
For more advanced players we have Riffstation for Mac and PC. You can load in any song from your music collection and do amazing things. In addition to giving you chords, you can also slow down and pitch shift the music, isolate or mute the guitar to create your own jam tracks and lots more.Oh boy, the hours https://play.riffstation.com/ would have saved me working out songs on piano and guitar when I was a kid. You don't get any detailed voicings out of it, but it does help you hit the ground running.
