Keep it up with the guitar playing! But I always thought this might introduce many people to guitar playing, or that it helped newbies to get started with some songs. Music books had only the piano parts, and the guitar chords they did show were never the ones the musicians were actually using. By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. They should actually start to discover and experiment with the bits and bobs they learned, creating something on their own.


English is also not my native language. Totally agree that companies should offer these types of things for free.

Yeah, Chordify work free but I realized they have some paid features like slowing down a song and so. Notify me of new posts via email.

Thank you for the suggestions. It was a stupid move to take it offline. But I totally agree with you, people should also train their ears. It might be that some enjoy these type of tools to make their first steps, playing the first songs.

Was great when we had friends over where I would play and different people would sing different songs that they knew. Hi, I found your blog while doing research trying to find out what the heck happened to Riff Station. Email required Address never made public. This is very important, I agree.

Ps I own a lot of Fender guitars now and Riffstation is a massive reason why. Still not as good looking like the Riffstation, but it does the job. Will try Chordify plus or whatever it is called and hope it replaces my Riffstation loss. My native language is German and I do write in English about various subjects and my interests, perumal suprabatham especially to improve myself but also to share some experiences or to write down some thoughts.

We should support newbie guitar players. Have some greedy ignoble parasites been threatning them with lawsuits? It might even pay off more in the long run than making a chord tool a paid feature. Have a good times with yours beautiful interests. Would you like to share this?

Great for experienced and amateur guitarists

You can get somehow used to Chordify however. There was some feature about the way Riff scrolled that made it easier to see the timing of the upcoming chords. Everything you wrote is right.

Try out Chordify, it works best of those both two alternatives. This might be personal taste, but somehow Fender had it all right with the Riffstation.

But Chordify works pretty well. All songs I tested, it was totally wrong. But apparently it was more than just that, because they have basically different plans. Archives Monthly Archives Yearly Archives. Feel the same as everyone else on this blog.

That brings us to the question, are there any alternatives to the Fender Riffstation? It made my learning so much fun.

And yes, there are many alternative learning methods, but again, some people might enjoy embedded YouTube music videos with chords shown on the screen. Nobody will talk about it, because it should be free.

That way they get a sale and we get the app. Excerpts and links may be used, provided that full and clear credit is given to the author and diaryofdennis. It looked like ChordU was not moderated by a human, but that the chords are picked up by a software. This never happened to me with the Riffstation.
