The Guitar Window works in two modes:
Name to Fingering: To look up a chord fingering based on the name of the
chord, simply type the name of the chord into the Chord Name Edit Box.
As you type, the guitar window will display all chords that start with
the same text that you have typed, and it will play the chord that most
closely matches what you have typed. To play the individual strings, you
can press the play buttons at the bottom of the fretboard. To display
all chords available, type an asterisk (*) in the chord name edit box.
When no chord is displayed, you can use the play buttons to tune your
guitar. When you press a play button the current note for that string
will be repeated 20 times or until you click somewhere else on the
2. Fingering to Chord Name: To look up a
chord name based on a fingering, click on the guitar fretboard to
indicate what strings you are pressing. When you click on a
string, it will toggle between being pressed and being released.
All chords that match the indicated fingering will be displayed in
the chord list. You may then pick from the chords in the list to
determine the chord name.
