Turn on the speakers
This is a simple application (developed with Scratch) that allows you to hear some basic guitar chords.
See usage instructions below.
Turn on the speakers.
Click on the green flag.
To play a chord: Press the corresponding key (A, B, C, D, E, F, G) on the keyboard. Alternatively, you can click with the mouse on the corresponding label.
To set the instrument's sound: Click with the mouse on the corresponding label.
Example: Press simultaneously left arrow, up arrow, 3 and D and you will hear Re-# (Dm#) for 1.5 beat. Note that the figure that you will see corresponds to Re- instead of Re-# that is being heard.
Left arrow: Plays the corresponding minor chord.
Right arrow: Plays the corresponding 7th chord.
Up arrow: Plays the corresponding sharp (#) chord (important note: the figure displayed in this case does not correspond to the sharp chord but to the original unmodified chord).
Down arrow: Plays the corresponding recession (b) chord (important note: the figure displayed in this case does not correspond to the recession chord but to the original unmodified chord).
Key 1: Sets duration to 0.5 beat.
Key 2: Sets duration to 1 beat (it's the default duration setting, when no number key is being pressed at all).
Key 3: Sets duration to 1.5 beat.
