Happy National Dictionary Day!*

Head to our Other Windows Software page to find programs like PowerTracks, GuitarStar: Brent Mason Country, Video Guitar Lessons, and more!

Scroll down and you'll find our Guitar Chord Dictionary & Piano Chord Dictionary programs. Each Chord Dictionary allows you to choose a root note to select the chord you want to learn, and it will be displayed on-screen with either the piano keyboard or the guitar fretboard!

In the Guitar Chord Dictionary & Piano Chord Dictionary you can change the sounds within the Settings window, whether it be the Root note or the Chord, and it doesn't even have to be a guitar or piano! Looking through the options, there's various piano choices, guitar choices, organ, etc. - but you can also choose more unique sounds like the tuba, saxophone, trumpet, clarinet, and more!

I purchased both the guitar and piano chord dictionaries and use at least one or the other almost every day.

My favorite feature of both programs is what I call reverse chord look-up. By that I mean I tell a program the fingering of a chord and the program displays the name, or names, of the chord.

One benefit is once I know the name one of these dictionaries labels a chord then I know that name will be accepted by Band-in-a-Box.

Another benefit is that I can use the programs even while the computer is offline from the internet.

If it's not on a Mac then by all means complain and put a wish in the wishlist forum.

I have found that many people (not saying you, Jim) do not know about the existing tool in the Windows version of BIAB. Windows menu, MIDI Chord Detection is one of my favorite things about BIAB. Not only does it give you up to four alternatives for the chord you finger on a MIDI keyboard, but with a keystroke it enters that chord into your song.

It occurs to me I should check to see if the Mac version, with 2021 just released today, has this yet, before Icelander mentions it.

The Mac 2021 does have MIDI chord recognition. But it does not have the dialog that pops up like in the Windows version. It's explained on page 65 of the 2021 Mac manual, under "Chord Entry". To use this feature, select the Options | MIDI Patch Maps | Insert current MIDI chord menu command. command+return is the keystroke combination for this function.

Yeah, I love these programs, the guitar and the piano dictionary (I just got the piano one I liked the guitar version so much.)

The piano one is great for songwriting, just idly clicking on chords until you find one that fits your mood.

Dm9!

I knew I was in a Dm9 mood!

Off to the races!!!!!!

Such a bargain too.
