About the Chord Genome Project My name is Austin, and I created the Chord Genome Project to help make the guitar easier for beginners (like me). Use this site’s Search Engine to find easy songs that use chords you already know. You can also filter by genres, search by chord progression, do wildcard searches and so much more. To learn about these extra features, check out the resources below. If you run into any bugs while using the platform, please let me know. Good luck. And happy strumming. -Austin Chord Genome Project Features & Filters Search Songs by Chord The Chord Genome Project lets you search for songs based on the chords they use. If you're having trouble adding chords, be sure to watch this video. Learn More Genre & Decade Filters You can filter songs by genre and decade. This is useful if you only like 1950’s Rock…or 1980’s Pop. You'll definitely need to use these filters as you add more chords. Learn More Wildcard Chord Searches Adding a wildcard lets you find thousands of songs that are one chord away from being playable. This is useful if you want to learn new chords and play harder music. Learn More Search by Chord "Progression" Use the All Keys filter to search for songs using common chord groupings - from the I-IV-V to the Andalusian Cadence. Learn More The Next Best Chord As the name implies, this tool can you tell you exactly what chord to learn next - based on your instrument, genre, and current chord knowledge. Learn More Force Last Chord Filter This filter allows you to force any chord of your choice to always appear in the results. This is useful when trying to learn tough chords - like F on guitar or E on ukulele. Learn More What Songs Can I Playwith the Chords I Know? To find out, use the Search tool below.
