I had this idea if it was possible to program a "chord generator".

- You give it a string instrument: x number of strings in x tuning
- You ask for a certain chord
- It gives you a number of options

The program would have to take into consideration:
- The limitations of the human anatomy (what is possible to play with one hand)
- How chords are made up
- Output the result

Would this be doable? How hard would it be to implement?

Kind of like "Chord!" for Android?

There's also a bunch online...

That one only supports some predefined instruments (tuning for guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin and ukulele), maybe I'm wrong...

What if you have some double and some single strings? What if some of the double strings are tuned differently (one from the other).

The reason behind my inquiry is because I made that charango app a while ago and someone asked me to make it work with other weird versions of the charango (there are a few) which are tuned differently, have different number of strings, etc.

I thought this would be the best solution to having something for all these different modifications of the instrument.

This wouldn't be super difficult to create, in terms of programming. It could be fairly easily done as a web application in Javascript, you'd just need to get samples of different instruments and create arrays representing realistic range each instrument, for a list of chords, and for structures.

Sort of related bot not entirely, I found something a while ago that acted as a song generator that randomly generated notes and chords based on a selected style of music.
