SeeChord is the name of a project I am working on that can display chord progressions and harmony in music. The idea just landed on me in its complete form while I was teaching piano, and refused to go away. I was convinced that the idea must already be “out there” so spent a few days researching and found that nobody had ever done this before. A US Patent, registered design and website ( seechord.co.uk ) later and now seechord is taking on a life of its own. Here is my youtube tutorial.
My aim with SeeChord is to enable students, teachers, song-writers and musicians to access the complicated world of chords and harmony at a much higher level than is currently available. With a very small amount of training, SeeChord can be a very powerful tool, x-raying a piece of music and revealing the often beautiful structure of the harmony. Here is an animated extract from Bohemian Rhapsody that shows how to interpret a chart.
