Play Along is a small, compact extension that is activated when you listen to music on YouTube. Once the YouTube video is loaded, Play Along will search Ultimate Guitar for the corresponding chords and tabs. If no match is found, clicking on the "Chords" and "Tabs" buttons will open up the search page in Ultimate Guitar.

In addition to Ultimate Guitar, users also have the option of navigating to the Chordify page.

How to use:

  1. Open
  2. Search for a song and start playing the video
  3. While on the Youtube page, click on the "Play Along" Chrome extension icon. You should now see options to lookup tabs and chords

I think you need to define the purpose of this app. If it's designed to look up tabs and then have the tab in sync with the Youtube video then it doesn't come close. If it's just designed to open UG or Chordify tabs/chords in a seperate Chrome tab, (that's the best I could get from it), then this is rather pointless.
