OK, check it out:

Instant chord symbol animations for chord progressions

SongTrellis can perform an animation that shows the chord symbol for each chord change at precisely the instant it sounds in the MIDI performance of that chord progression. Here's an animation that I setup for the If I Were A Bell changes.

Creating this was a 15 second process for me:

  1. Open the page for If I Were A Bell in The Changes
  2. Follow the SongTrellis Excerpt Service link and press the Play button that appears on that page
  3. Follow the "Launch Tunetext page for this except" link that appears below the Play button at the instant the excerpt starts to play.
  4. On the Tunetext page, press the Perform a Chord Change Animation button that appears to the right of the score that is displayed.
