I made this website as a resource for my songwriters class. It has a simple chord progression generator, songwriting assignments and even a song idea generator that will give you fun suggestions like "Write a song which is a lament for a teacher that carried the world".
7. Chord Chart Websites
The best way to find the chords to your favorite songs is to simply google the title and the word chords. If you do that you will usually end up at a site like chordie.com, e-chords or ultimate-guitar. Just keep clicking until you find a chart that you like. Also check out our song library for a list of songs with videos and links that we've specifically picked out for you!
