From ChordWizard Software:
ChordWizard Silver is the interactive guide that lets you explore music on the fretboard without getting lost on the way. With over 115 fretted instruments and tunings (including Guitar, Bass Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin and Ukulele) and catering for both left and right handed players, ChordWizard Silver Edition is a flexible and essential resource for the beginner. You can find out how to play chords on your instrument with a single click of a mouse. Hear and compare the sounds of chordshapes from the supplied libraries. The notes in each chordshape are displayed so you can understand why it makes the sound of the chord you are looking for. The building blocks of all chords and scales on your instruments are notes, so it's very important to learn where notes are located on your fretboard. ChordWizard Silver Edition gives you a colorful interactive display of note positions for all chords and scales on the fretboard. Each note is labelled with a different color, so you can quickly see how they repeat across the strings. ChordWizard Silver Edition includes a set of music theory lessons that give you a great start to understanding what music is about. You can understand a great deal about music using ChordWizard Silver Edition without needing to know staff notation. But if you want to learn to read music, you can easily find out how chordshapes, chords and scales appear on staff lines, and hear their sounds as you are looking at them. With integrated reporting facilities, ChordWizard Silver Edition can produce high quality full-color printed output to capture whatever results you have found in the workspace.
