I have been using this for a while; thought I would pass it along;

If you know a chord form and the fret number it will figure out just about anything;

Different tunings and base chords as well;

Allows you to cut and paste the chords to another document, etc.

QuickChord v1.1.2 Guitar Chord Diagram Generator - Freeware

New version 3 QuickChord is not freeware,

although the original version and different name QwikChord (free) is apparently still available;

This is the one that I use Version 1.2.7:

Both versions

I used this to figure out the chords to EC's "I Want A Little Girl" by watching a You Tube video;

It took about an hour, but it was time well spent;

I just couldn't figure it all out until I found the video and could see the chord changes up close.

Cool idea but with "alternate tunings" you could have a real exercise in frustration trying to figure from a video. As a bass player I hate playing with people who use different tunings and don't give a chord chart. Last time I ended up watching the keyboard player to try and catch the changes.

Agreed;

It just so happens for this particular song that I was actually in tune with the video and that I had realized that it started in Ab;
also had figured out about 1/3 of the chords;

This video just pointed me in the right direction, so I went for it.
