Why sharps in flat keys? Why no Augmented chords?

    I agree with the comment regarding Sharps and Flats

    I think allowing the user to choose is the best option.

    For example playing a song in B you usually get B E & F# and most would refer to see F# rather than Bb 

    However playing a song in Bb you get Eb & F and most music (especially the good old stuff) that is is written with Bb and Eb then these shold be used rather than A# or D#

    I know there are exceptions but this is just my spin on it.

    This took me a long time to figure out.  If you click on Improve to open the editor, then click on Signature, the song will switch between flat and sharp spellings of the chords.

    Speaking of Sharps and Flats

    Good morning.
    Just another  suggestion for something for your programmers to consider when they have a moment.

    Would you consider increasing the font for the Sharps and Flats symbol on the chords, Why not make them the same size as the Root Note or the chord extension: m or 7th etc.

    Some of us old folks have have glasses and some of us use the mobile phone &/or iPod etc and I do find the font for the Sharps and Flats symbol quite small. I think it is very important to have Sharps and Flats symbols the same font size. so you can read them clearly.

    Ironic that what led me here was trying to figure out how I'm supposed to do an augmented chord...for an ELO song.  Nice, Dave

    I'd also strongly support the addition of augmented chords in the app.  I just looked at Guess Who's 'Laughing' and nothing shows up in those bar boxes.  I can't add an improvement because A+ is not on the list of available variations!
    Ditto The Dave Clark Five's 'Because', Sarah Vaughan's 'Broken Hearted Melody' and a slew of other great songs.

    One more item:  I changed a bunch of chords in one of several versions of Gerry & The Pacemakers' 'Mrs. Brown ...Daughter', and tried to show the changes to another Chordify user, couldn't find them anywhere!  How do I know if my changes were accepted, and where to find the modified version from the long list of possible renditions of this song?
