Detailed Font Map
What is it?
The Chordette app can send the chord fonts to other applications as text, so you can make your own chord charts and song sheets for Guitalele or Baritone Guitar. Each chord is mapped to a specific key on the keyboard, so you can use the chord fonts without the Chordette app. It’s a lot easier than dealing with images of chords, making it easy to create guitalele chord charts and song sheets. Chordette includes first and second position chords, and is 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 Guitalele 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 guitalele chords in first and second position on the fretboard. When used to create guitalele chord charts, there is a Copy Chord button to enter chords into the document. The Chordette app is available for both Mac and Windows.
