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.
