Here’s a list of 5 guitar chord extensions for Chrome which you can use to learn guitar chords. You don’t need to know a lot of chords to play some of the more simpler songs. Those interested in more complex songs will have to get familiar with more complex chord shapes and patterns. Chrome extensions that I covered on the list down below will help you learn by showing you finger placements for pretty much every functional guitar chord out there. They will even show you several different methods of finger positioning, for you to choose the best one for you.
Guitar Chords Chart
Guitar Chords Chart displays a large selection of guitar tabs for you to select and view the finger placement. Hundreds of chords are available, as you can see on the image above.
To view finger placement for a particular chord, just click on it. Image of the fretboard is going to be shown at the top with dots depicting which strings on which fret need to be pressed down. Notice that several methods are offered, leaving it up to you to choose the one that works best for you.

Virtual Guitar Chords is a bit more advanced guitar chord extension for Chrome where you even get to play the cord to hear how it’s supposed to sound.
Notice the “Play Chord” buttons. Next to chords there are also scales that you can look up and practice. Multiple versions (variations) of a chord are available. Some are more complicated and they just don’t make any sense, so make sure to browse through the “chord shape variations” category to find the chord shapes best suited for whichever song it is that you play.

Chord Finder is much more visually pleasing, as you can see for yourself on the image above. Two work modes are available, horizontal (like the one that Virtual Guitar Chords offers) and vertical.
I opted out for the vertical view. It’s very intuitive. A large selection of chords, scales, arpeggios, notes and triads are available. Search tool makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. Another thing that you get improved here, at least when compared to Virtual Guitar Chords, is the chord previewer/player. It gives a much better sound, almost like an actual guitar would.

Virtual Guitar isn’t that advanced, seeing how it only focuses on scales and chords, but you can still learn a lot, especially if you’re just starting out.
Most of the controls for switching between chord shapes and scales is located in the menu above the guitar. You can choose between a 6 string and a 7 string guitar. Available scales include the pentatonic scale, blues scales, whole tone, harmonic minor and more.

I’ll finish off the list with another simplistic directory of chords called Guitar Chords. It’s very similar to the first chord extension from this list, but there some small differences.
Interface design is better, find tool helps you filter out the chords that you’re interested in, and you also get a more readable chord diagrams.
When it comes to features and functionality, I gotta say that I enjoyed using Chords Finders. It’s easy to use for beginners, everything is much more visual than it is in Guitar Chords or Guitar Chords Chart. Which one of the 5 guitar chord extensions from the list above you’re going to use is ultimately up to you. Just make sure to leave a reply down below telling me which one you did end up using and how your guitar mastery is progressing.
