  • Her name is Cherry; we've just met

    Third cut of a guitar chord shape generator. Given a fretted instrument with a particular tuning (eg. 6 string guitar tuned EADGBE), the generator will produce the frettings necessary to play any specified chord. This is not done from a chord library, but algorithmically (hence should work with whacky tunings). This version doesn't fully respect the limitations of the human hand beyond specifying a maximum 'stretch' of a few frets, so some of the shapes generated would need a friend to help play them! This will be dealt with in a future version. This third version contains improved handling of differing tunings and instruments (eg. DADGAD; banjo) but still doesn't check for unplayable shapes.

  • Musical Note Frequencies

    With the usual Western music it is common to use the Equal temperament: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Equal_temperament http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/music/et.html Then the note frequencies are calculated by this formula.
