Chord can be described by its root and other information. In “Chord By Note Mode”, Chord is categorized by different Root (Note), so that you can look up a chord quickly by notes if you know its name. For example, if you want to check the fingerings of Cmaj7, just select C root at the top the interface [1], then find out Cmaj7 on bottom of the main screen.

[1] Root Selection: Chord can be categorized by root. You can select the certain root and then find out the specific chord in the chords table. For example, if you want to find out D#7, you need to select D# root first.
