Dutch startup Chordify is singing a happy tune right now, as its crowdfunding campaign reached its target of 180.000 €uro on December 20th. It took three weeks to reach the desired amount as the campaign kicked off November 30th. The “Shazam for musicians” will let their symbid campaign rock on for overfunding until the end of the year.
“Karaoke for musicians”
Everyone who has ever tried to learn how to play the guitar or the piano knows the feeling: you hear a great tune, you try and figure out how to play it, but you just can’t figure out what that chord progression in those last few bars is. It’s not an F-major, nor an A-minor, but what is it? Sure, some of us have perfect pitch, but most mere mortals need a bit of help with learning the chords to their favourite tunes. You can buy expensive sheet music, or you can use Chordify. With a Shazam-like solution this e-learning platform lets you find out the chords to any song so you can rock out with the latest tunes on your guitar, or boogie down with the biggest hits on your piano. The founders themselves describe their product as a “karaoke for musicians!”
