Yamaha Song Chords

Song Chords Icon

Okay, like the chord detector app this app is great fun!  The Yamaha Song Chords app is great for guitar or piano students.  With an online store containing over 1,000 songs, the app is unlike other guitar chord apps in that there is a backing band playing with you!  The app features a 16 track song mixer that allows you to remove or add instruments to your backing track as you please.  The app is set up so that the chord symbols are synced to change in time with the music and there are chord references for both guitar and piano.

Here’s a screenshot of my jam session to Blind Melon’s No Rain–AWESOME SONG!

I love this app and think it is totally worthwhile.  Song Chords is a free download, however while your first song is free you have to pay to download subsequent songs–$2.99 does feel a little steep BUT these songs can go A LONG way in the classroom!  One great thing they do is provide a preview of the song before you buy it so you can see if it’s something you really want.

This app has great potential for the classroom!  Hook the app up to a sound system and project the app onto your whiteboard using apple TV and you can have your students playing along to any song in no time!
