The ‘Ukulele Helper

A lot of chord finding sites have popped up recently, but they all seem to revolve around the same simple concepts. I was just informed of a chord finder that blows the rest out of the water.

The ‘Ukulele Helper is a chord and scale finder in an interactive format that has tons of features. You can chose between a normal, English, or baritone tuning, plus what way the strings are oriented (A string on the top or bottom), or create your own tuning. The chord finder works in two ways. You can click on the frets of the virtual ‘ukulele to have the program identify the chord for you. Or, you can choose a root note and chord type (it looks like there are 28 chord types) to be displayed. From there you can see different inversions and limit the range of frets. There are 47 standard and bizarre scales to choose from (major to gypsy to bebob to pelog).

It’s still being developed, but already The ‘Ukulele Helper could be one of the most powerful ‘ukulele tools on the web.

    I’ve been useing the ukulele helper site pretty much exclusively for some time now . It’s been a most powerful took for me so far ……… BUT ………. It appears it is gone gone gone from the web . Any chance someone might now why and if it is coming back . This is a HUGE loss if it has gone bye bye .

    I’d really like to know whats up if you find out . It’s highly disappointing to not be able to use it anymore.

    Thanks in advance . Ragzdaddy

      That’s a shame. Hopefully it’s just in re-vamp mode. I know it was in beta mode when I first discovered it. Maybe it’s getting upgraded.
