Chord-C

Find chords, find friends and play songs.
 

Website

We want people to find chords and play their favorite songs easily. So we've created much more than just a guitar chord search site; we've created a free community for people who love playing the guitar to connect and share with each other.

Overview

Background

In 2007, my friend and I wanted to convert his CD-ROM full of guitar chords and photos into something that was more digestible as a web application. He worked on the back end while I concentrated on the front-end and design of the site. We built the entire site in less than three months working on it part time. We did enough to get it working while iterating on the second version. The first version of the site also had a mobile web component that I built using the API we created for the desktop version of the site. I submitted the mobile web app to Apple and was considered a Staff Pick. I created flexible CSS so that the chords responded to different size monitors. The site has gained more than six thousand members since it started.
