Re: Software for chord identification


Two things that come to my mind (and parts are already in the other replies)

1) Will a simple chromatic tuner help? You can buy them in a music shop for somewhrere between 30 and 100 dollar. E.g. http://store.musicbasics.com/t-yt250.html
Or in PC Software you might check a page of my site where a mirror is of the original site (original no longer exists) http://www.didgeweb.com/didgetools/tuner_e.html

2) Expecially in modern music from the 60's and 70's (and maybe even later), recordings were regularly speeded up, to give the music more "power". Shifts of half to full notes are not uncommon. Not sure who it was, but there was a band that had a hit with such a speeded up single. However, they could no longer reproduce it in life situations because the range of the singer's voice couldn't handle the (shifted) high notes.

Hope this helps
