    ChordU does the same job as riffstation does. ChordU haa integrated YouTube. It has free capo tuner as like riffstation. And now riffstation is gone or down. It is the best alternative out there.

    Its chord structure interface is very similar to Riffstation. I can choose any song and get the chord breakdown. The most important feature is duplicated in ChordU well.
