Is there a way to display chord symbols in music players (software apps) ? Like
.srt files for movie subtitles or
.lrc for music lyrics, isn't there a format or alternative for chords ?
Details & Usage:
Lyrics / subtitles support is now common in media players (
.lrc file formats). Knowing this, for a pop song I know well, I could make my own lyrics file with say just Chord Symbols and the first few lyrics of verses + chorus and notes so I can play along / sing / rehearse with the song playing.
But is there a better (ideally standard + well supported) way to do this, to display both the lyrics and chords ? Even better, an existing format / resource to get these for free / less work ? A lot of players already have a download lyrics function built-in, so it's almost seamless.
So, does it exist already, or I'm day-dreaming ?
This is more of a question of memory helping tools rather than finding the chords & structure (which are easy once you know the key and song a bit).
