Package name: gtrcrd (Guitar chords)
Author: Riccardo Bresciani - gtrcrd@tex.nopkoguo.it

Description: This package is suitable to add chords to lyrics.
The main advantages of using this package is that chords are
written before the text they refer to and LaTeX takes care of
typesetting them above the lyrics in the right place: thanks to
this we avoid the task of correctly aligning chords above the
lyrics, which is tedious in the case of a monospaced font and
absolutely non-trivial in the case of variable-width fonts.

gtrcrd – Add chords to lyrics

The package provides the means to specify guitar chords to be played with each part of the lyrics of a song. The syntax of the macros reduces the chance of failing to provide a chord where one is needed, and the structure of the macros ensures that the chord specification appears immediately above the start of the lyric.
