Chord And Melody Metrics


For each song in the theory tabs database there are some metrics. How this metrics are calculated, and how to use this way to calculate metrics to make our music stand out? Is it possible to add a functionality to evaluate our songs in hookpad + , based on the same metrics?


Hi @Alesswo,

The metrics scores are percentiles (measured against all other songs in the Theorytab database), and each metric is computed from a variety of factors that are outlined heuristically here. It would be relatively straightforward for us to compute these scores for a personal project, so if this is something that people are interested in, I’d be happy to take a look into building this into Hookpad.


Thanks Ryan, could be really cool to have it.

very interested!

That feature would be awesome, I would buy hookpad if it had it.

Hi all, just wanted to let you know we haven’t forgotten about this. We have an experimental version working and will be pushing the option to display metrics in Hookpad after we’ve done some testing

The way that you fit this into the workspace is excellent.
