Lost Music

“He who ignored music: lived with a big failure!” – once the philosopher Nietzsche said. Listening to the radio and playing guitar for more than 50 years: I’ve lost a lot of good songs out of my memory. Vinyl records lost. Tape recorder lost. Paper-notebooks with chords and tabs for guitar lost.

Cassettes lost, but saved some tracks, converted digitally, to CD and USB-stick.

It goes on and on. Now I discovered CHORDIFY.NET = a paradise for guitarists! Fill in a youtube URL and the software will present the chord progress! I’ve made a test with two of my favorite songs: (1) “Mockingbird” by Carly Simon and James Taylor and (2) a version of the “September Song” played by the Gypsy jazz guitarist Bireli Lagrene.
