Guitar Chord Generator


I am working on creating a guitar chord generator program as a personal project to combine my passion for music and computer science. I’ve already built a very primitive version of it, but am looking for advice on how to further this into a powerful tool.

Here’s what I have so far:

Here’s something similar to what I’d like it to be:

I’ve never created a GUI or anything visual for that matter. I’m really trying to build off my skills I’ve gained in Data Structures and Algorithms with Java and Python, but still want to create a web-accessible, graphical program.

I’m looking for any and all advice on this! Anything feedback would be greatly appreciated.


This is awesome, I’m a fellow guitar player and I personally think there is a great need for this. I’d also think it would be cool to map out chord tones for each key as well. Anyway, keep up the great work, and when I learn more front end, it would be cool to colab on this one. Happy coding! :smile:

Thanks! I’m facing a bit of a brick wall when it comes to front end, however, since I am not really sure how to create one with Java.

True, I’m also facing that same said brick wall. However, if you take a look at this site you realize that it doesn’t have to be that fancy and could just be more functional than anything.
