GuitarCodex v.2.2b (Build 001)
This Java applet uses the MIDI capability for J2SE v1.3.x and requires JavaPlugin. The notes and chords are generated by sending messages to one of the default synthesizer's MidiChannel objects directly using the MidiChannel.noteOn() and related methods. 
You can use GuitarCodex as a tablature chord dictionary and more. It allows you to see and hear chords, scales and displays associated guitar chords in a graphical representation. Using the mouse, fingerings can be made by clicking on the fingerboard.

Non-natural notes shown as flats.

Variable background colours.
