Select a Key:

Select your favorite "Key" and whether you want to use the "Major" or "Minor" scale.

The resulting chord chart will display a good number of "usable" chords that all work "in the key of" the selected scale.

(In other words, all of the chords that appear in the chart will "work" in your song.)

Drag & Drop:

- Chords from the chart into the timeline.

- Rearrange Chords in the timeline.

- Remove chords from the timeline.

Roll the Dice:

... and a random chord progression will appear in the timeline.

The numbers below each chord in the timeline refer to the number of "beats" the chord will linger for.

You can adjust the playback spped of the "song" using, um, the "Playback Speed" slider.

The "Rake Speed" refers to the speed of a single "strum."
