Changing Colors of Fingers and Barre Chords

June 20th, 2020

Another requested feature is now ready to use: Changing the color of individual fingers and barre chords! Just like adding text you can click on the “Edit Colors” button and then click on a finger or a barre chord to reveal a color picker where you can pick a color for the finger or barre chord that you selected. As easy as that! Here’s an example:

How it all started

May 2nd, 2020

ChordPic was created after its predecessor, Chordpix, suddenly went offline and left guitar players around the world hanging. After Jonathan Eli, my friend and brilliant guitar player, told me about this I immediately started implementing a replacement. It has been a fun side project ever since, and I’m looking forward to continuing improving this tool for all guitar players.

Since the very early days of ChordPic, Jonathan Eli has been using the generated chord chart images for his unique educational YouTube channel. You should definitely check out Jonathan Eli’s YouTube channel!
