References - Chord Reference

Description: You choose a note and chord type. This ergonomic widget will display simply the notes composing that chord on your guitar. Your ear is the limit. This is a port of the original classic shareware for Mac OS in 1994... It hopefully offers an ergonomic interface for chords, one you’ll find useful and easy to use.

there is a widget called GuitarChords that does the job beautifully for guitars. i suggest focusing on one instrument and making it great for that instead of so-so for two instruments.

I created an account just so I could refute jonlink. I like this widget much better than GuitarChords. The keyboard and chord-flavor buttons make it much easier to use, plus yours uses colors for each interval.

Just a coupla suggestions though: please make a background for the top area - I keep clicking through to other widgets/the desktop.
Also, the widget is quite cluttered - I'd be happy to see some things get removed: 'Z's Chord Reference', since I don't need to know that all the time, and '6 String Guitar...' since I can see that from the letters next to the fretboard. Also, it'd be nice to less talk and more features on the back, like alternate tunings.

But in all it's a great widget! Thanks much!
