Chord Identifier (Reverse Chord Finder)

The chord identifier provides a way to find chords that have a specific set of notes, and other related chords.

The chord identifier is enabled for most types of chords: major, minor, augmented, diminished, 8 types of 7th chords (7, maj7, m7, m(maj7), dim7, 7b5, 7#5, m7b5), ninth chords, eleventh chords, 13th chords, sixth chords and suspended chords.

You may also try our Ultimate Chord Finder that lets you find chords using music scales and harmonized chords as constrains.

Instructions: Do not repeat the same note twice; The note's order is not important (except for the bass note, if the 1st checkbox is checked); If you don't want to restrict the search to chords with the 1st note as key, then uncheck the 1st checkbox; If you want a broader identification of results, allowing chords with these notes and more notes also, then uncheck the 2nd checkbox.
