Description

Not your average chord finder, Songo is a songwriting and music education tool that will help you discover chord progressions by grouping chords of the same key together. Songo is an audible reference tool for all 12 musical keys, including chords and scales. Transpose music or just play around. No music theory knowledge required. You can also explore modal scales within keys (new in version 2.0!).

You will also discover chord progressions to many famous hit songs just by tapping about in Songo... who would have thought it could be this easy!

Songo can be a source of inspiration. Find musical passages using the unique Auto mode for chords and note progressions generatively performed by the Songo algorithm. It's a hands-free auto-play mode, handy for practise.
