What is it?
Chordette contains high quality banjo chord fonts and an application to manage them. The Chordette app can send the chord fonts to other applications as text. Each chord is mapped to a specific key on the keyboard, so you can type. Either way its a lot easier than dealing with images to create chord charts and songsheets. It’s a favorite tool for teachers, music therapists, and musicians.

What is the Chordette App?
The Chordette app is a companion to the Chordette fonts and acts as a chord library browser. It takes up very little screen real estate so you can run it side by side with other apps. It provides a handy interface for looking at chords in first and second position on the fretboard. When used to create chord charts, there is a Copy Chord button to enter chords into the document. The Chordette app is available for both Mac and Windows.
