Welcome to Musical Scales and Chords
This site is geared to playing musicians and composers. We developed some tools while playing and composing that helped us in our work. At first the tools were just a list of relationships that we used to help us find scales and chords. After a while, the lists became too long, so we implemented some macros in Excel to find more chord relationships.
We decided to share our tools with you. We hope you find them useful.
Our guitar and piano chord database has over 84.000 chords and 500.000 chord charts. Just enter a chord name, we'll try to understand what you're searching for ;)
