Update in January 2016: Due to lack of time and changing priorities, I haven't made
substantive updates to these tools for about 10 years. I've considered taking the
site down, but I'm actively using the domain for other purposes

ChordSpell -- Name the chord formed by notes you select,
with optional fretboard entry and alternate tunings.
ChordMatch -- Find chords that contain a given melody
note (useful for "figuring out" songs).
I hope you find these tools interesting and helpful. By the way,
this site is strictly non-commercial with no advertising banners, popups,
or traded links. Old school.
CapoCalc -- Determine where to set a capo to match
the key of another player.
