Our custom progression builder allows you to hear the chords as you build your song so that you can easily capture the sound you’re after, even if your guitar isn’t with you.
Stop losing track of what you’re working on. From parts of songs to the song itself, notes, lyrics, and recordings, Magical Pick™ wants to make sure you never forget that perfect progression.
If you don't have a strong grasp on musical theory, no problem! Magical Pick™ is built on a curated library of chord families that allows you to benefit from all of that knowledge and keep you inspired...seriously, we even built a randomizer into it to help get those juices flowing!
The journey of songwriting can be messy. Notes and lyrics scribbled on loose paper, strumming ideas jotted down or hopefully “remembered” in various ways, hours of researching chords that will fit what you’re writing…it’s all a recipe for a big bowl of discouragement with a side of frustration. You have great songs inside of you and we want you to easily bring them to life! As they say, inspiration is a spark…make sure you can capture it.
Imagine being able to plan out your compositions, audibly build out progressions, make notes, write lyrics, and add recordings all in one organized space. That’s Magical Pick™, and, that’s just one side of it. There’s a whole other side of the app meant to be an open playground of exploring and learning the chords in all 24 key options from our curated library. Learn more than just the standard majors, minors, and 7ths (spoiler…there are 18 more types). Did we also mention that the library was built on chord families? Why is that important? For you, this means that any chords in a key, no matter how you combine them, will sound great together. This translates to the equivalent of a flash flood for songwriting and the cure for writer’s block!
In short, Magical Pick™ allows you to hear and plan your song ideas, add recordings and lyrics, and it helps you keep all those ideas organized!
Tap on the chord listings to hear what they sound like first. You’ll save loads of time chasing your sound when you don’t have to worry about playing the chords that wouldn’t have worked.
If you like a chord, swipe it to your song! From there you can tap to hear, re-order, remove, duplicate…whatever works best for you to create the pattern you’re making.
Practice your songs by seeing and hearing what each chord should sound like. We have over 6000 chords from all 21 types, not just the Majors, Minors, and 7ths.
Scroll through your chords and start adding your guitar magic in whatever style you play. Did you come up with something interesting? The onscreen recorder lets you save the audio while the progression is still in view, and the journal button allows you to quickly add any notes or lyrics to what you’re working on.
You’ll enjoy exploring and learning in your chord reserve. Tap on a key to hear a sample of a chord in the key and then select either the Major or Minor of that key to start exploring.
We dove into the emotions tied to each key and assigned colors to them to help convey that emotion. It also made the experience of using the app fun!
