Let’s tap Chord Analysis Settings.
In the Re-analysis, you can change the tempo and the meter.
Changing the tempo, you can get even more chords for a specific measure.
For example, if there is a chord change in a certain measure, you can only get the first chord with the Original setting.
If you change the tempo, you can also get the second chord of that measure.
Changing the meter seems to be not necessary for rock music.

 

With Detail Settings, you can shift the beat and change the key.
The first feature is necessary when the automatically devided measures do not fit the real beat.
The second feature will do a lot when you use a capo.
