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.
Riffstation uses an automatic chord recognition algorithm to "listen" to the music and figure out the chords for you!
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.
Not right now, but we are working on it!
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.
Riffstation(beta) can only process a certain number of songs every minute. As Riffstation has grown in popularity, more and more users have been competing to process songs. We have a new system in place that will slowly increase the amount of songs that can be processed daily. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Note that at busy times of the day, you will encounter the limitation more frequently. Songs labelled 'Play' will always be available to use however.
