Detailed Font Map
Banjo Chord Fonts, Banjo Chord Chart, and Chordette:
Chordette contains high quality banjo chord fonts and an application to manage them. The Chordette app can send the banjo chords to other applications as text. Each chord is mapped to a specific key on the keyboard to type without the app. Either way its a lot easier than dealing with images to create banjo 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 Banjo chord 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 for Banjo in first and second position on the fretboard. When used to create a Banjo chord chart, there is a Copy Chord button to enter chords into the document. The Chordette app is available for both Mac and Windows.
