Setup Browser for Automatic Audio Reload


Most features at Color-Guitar.Com work with practically any browser: You can Jam to Songs & Tracks; you can reference all the charts; you can create progressions with the Modal-Surf Composition Tool. Windows users can Save & Load Progressions with the One-Touch functions of our Hotkeys setup.
 
In Modal-Surf you are given a vast array of webpages, each containing one mode of the multitude found within Harmony's Map. You become aware of your position within harmony as you are essentially choosing webpages (containing chords with modes) and loading them into your browser in a sequence. Using browser forward and back you can then recall your chord changes and play along following the corresponding color-guitar charts. It becomes easy to choose good sounding yet creative progressions.
 
For musical accompaniment to load automatically upon all browser navigations, only a few browsers when set to 'allow autoplay' will process this consistently. Google Chrome looks great for this site, but will not always load audio. Microsoft Edge is a good way to try out the audio feature since it looks very good and loads audio consistently, though a little slow. Then for fast and consistent autoplay, install the Waterfox Browser which is forked from Firefox. It looks good and has some cool features. Furthermore, it is ideal to keep your Modal-Surf sessions in a browser seperate from your main internet browser.
