I’m trying to play along with songs using only bar chords … no open chords (if at all possible). While learning all bar chords along the neck could be considered an excellent training technique, it’s need (in my case), stems from a failing memory and the need to simplify play-along’s in real-time. As my ability to memorize details continues to spiral into dementia … I’ve become very visual when playing music. The Problem: When chord diagrams are presented for any song, my brain is forced to ‘interpret the open chord’ into a ‘bar chord shape’ in real time during the playback. Sadly, I’m failing at this translation thru no fault of my own. REQUEST: Is there any way you could offer a ‘Bar Chord Only’ option that simply takes the Chord Diagrams the program has already calculated and ‘substitute’ an appropriate bar chord as needed? I would greatly benefit during real-time playback by eliminating the mental translation requirement. Additionally, exporting to .pdf would be improved if Page 1 of every pdf contained all Chord diagrams contained in that song(s). If the option existed to select Bar Chords, it would be expected that all available export options of the program would reflect that setting. Any consideration you may extend towards this enhancement would go greatly towards allowing this incredible tool, you’ve all nurtured, towards keeping senior citizens engaged in their love and appreciation of music, for as long as possible.
