    Multiple chords per measure

    Exactly. The whole point of the underline/box is to define a measure so that it's not just a long line of chords running together. But the vertical gridlines do that job. As they define the measures, the underlines/boxes aren't needed. So rather than defining a measure with only underline or...

    Multiple chords per measure

    So measures are ALWAYS underlined or boxed if more than 1 chord? That gets very hard to read when the charts have a lot of chords - especially with rhythmic notation as the rhythms on a lower row are too close to the underlines on an upper row. Those vertical gridlines do a great job of making...

    Multiple chords per measure

    I must be missing something - but I can't figure out how to enter two chords per measure. Example - song is 4/4. I'm aligning measures and showing the measure guidelines. I want chords on beats 1 and 3 of each measure. I want this: C G | C D | C G | C D First try - I type C, G, End Measure and...

    'Fixing' wrong initial key

    Is there any way to change the key without changing the chords? Example: I started charting a song using letters and neglected to set the key first. So - after charting my song in Ab with all my Ab Db and Eb chords, I realized the key signature in the header showed Key: C. I couldn't "fix" that...

    Support for capo please!

    It would be great if 1Chart had support for capos. For example, I'm charting a song in the key of Db. Guitar plays the song as if in the key of C with a capo at fret 1. Problem is the key is indicated at the top correctly as Db, but I need to type all chords (as letters) as if in C. That's a...

    Little Red Corvette

    evikjames - looks like your question is over a year old. But if you're still looking for an answer - here goes. Assume you changed the key so you're using chords F G Am. Yes - technically it's the key of C. But that's not the tonality. You might hear it as centering around F. Or maybe you hear...

    Secondary Dominants

    Standard practice is to label it as cmc2878 said above. All chords should be labeled relative to the key. For example, if in the key of C major and your progression is filled with non-diatonic chords like: C E F Fm D7/F# G7 C You'd chart that out as: 1 3 4 4m 2(7)/#4 5(7) 1 Those 7s in...

    Legend for rhythmic symbols?

    That's exactly what I was looking for. I know NN isn't really standardized - there are many variations and personal preferences. So just to confirm a few things: Mute Dot (solid dot above), Marcato (solid up-triangle above), Dorito big (chord wrapped in large down triangle), and Dorito small...

    Legend for rhythmic symbols?

    The top bar of the entry area in 1chart offers rhythmic notations: tick mark, solid circle, solid triangle, greater than, less than Switch to the "note" and the entry area offers diamonds, upside down triangles, more... I know a few of these. Tick mark is to indicate number of beats per chord...

    Writing a Chord with diminished third in NNS?

    I just bought 1Chart and am browsing the forums. Don't know if you still have this question. A diminished chord IS NOT a minor chord with the 3rd flattened an additional semitone. A diminished chord is basically a minor chord with the 5th flattened in addition to the 3rd. Major chord = 1 3 5...
