(sorta OT?)does a site with this functionality exist?

wouldn't it be really convenient if there was a site out there that would basically allow you to take a simple image of a piano keyboard, highlight the notes you want, and then send THAT page with the chord highlighted to someone else via a link? Or even taking it farther, save a few chords or notes in succession to send someone a chord progression or melody. Perhaps above it you could also have a staff showing the notes too, to make it even more complete. the main idea of this is for quick simplicity, not to score out whole pieces. say, for example, I was talking to a buddy and wanted to send him a quick chord progression I was working on... I could type out the chord names/symbols, but that leaves a lot up to interpretation, I could type the note names out on the computer (most common way of doing this) which is pretty simple, but its just so ugly and non-musical... The key here is avoiding external score software or doing it by hand and scanning in the image. I just wanna click on some notes, press 'share' and send the link along.


If a site like this already exists, well then darn it, I'm bad at google, and I'm gonna use it all the time, but to my knowledge there's nothing quite like it.

Don't know of a site but I understand what you're after.


My piano students bring their smartphones to lessons - handy for short video clips of stuff.


They're only there for a half hour lesson - taking a video clip is quicker than notating it for them - and sometimes the notation won't easily convey some nuance or rhythm which is really easy to grasp in a 15 sec video clip.


Could you get a little stand for your smartphone and text a short video clip?


I don't need a stand - they're holding their smartphones while I'm playing/talking it through - you'll need one for ease if you're on your own.

I'm the piano player "off of" Borrowed Books.
