Chord grids overview

When Show Advanced Tools is selected in the Advanced preferences pane, you can add chord grid symbols from the Part box. Logic Pro includes a large library of chord grids, in standard tuning and in a variety of alternative tunings.

You can review and edit existing chord grid libraries and chord grids, as well as create your own, in the Chord Grid Library.

The Chord Grid Library window contains three panes: the Instrument Editor, Chord Grid Selector, and Chord Grid Editor. The Instrument Editor may not be available, depending on which method you use to open the Chord Grid Library.

Open the Chord Grid Library

Do one of the following:

  • Choose Logic Pro > Preferences > Chord Grid Library.

  • Choose Layout > Chord Grid Library from the Score Editor menu bar.

  • Drag a chord grid symbol from the Part box into the score.

  • Double-click an existing chord grid symbol in the score.
