I noticed some chords don't seem to be supported on this site and I wonder if I am just typing them wrongly. For example I tried to write a F major 7th chord with diminished 5th as FM7b5, but it does not turn blue in the published result. This is really annoying, because I do not want to explain how it should be played.

Did I type the chord correctly?

Is there a guide to this on the site?

Are only the most basic chords supported (turning blue)?

I think he means if you look for a chord tab-no idea what the correct name is- for a song that the chords show up blue and you can see how to make the chord

I know what you mean I have had that problem my self, if you get too exotic then it's a gamble as to which will blue and which won't, ask emad he's the Tab guy round here, perhaps he can help.

So you're trying to spell F A Cb E?

Try Fmaj7#11. I don't think there's really such a thing as a major 7th chord with a flat 5.

Yes, I tried Fmaj7#11 and Fmaj7(#11) by the way, and that may be more correct, but it did not turn blue (except I did when I fail all the time )

The website is just stupid my bromie. They should put in a feature where the you yourself can input how to play the chord so different conventions of writing the name (Fmaj7#11, FM7#11, F^7#11, etc.) Don't matter as much.

Assume it's F A B E - That would be an Fmaj7#11, but you have no 5th.

So if that's the case, I don't think the program's going to validate a chord being Fmaj7 #11 (no fifth).
