Guitar and Mandolin Chord Charts

I was at guitar camp a number of years ago, out on the porch, it was dark and hard to see the song that I had printed off the internet in my jam notebook. I had only started playing guitar and taking the lead on a song in a circle was a big deal. And then I couldn't read the page. It just fell apart. But it gave me the beginning of an idea, to reprint these song pages in nice big type so I can read them in the dark. And that lead me to a second idea, how about some charts for all those guitar or mandolin chords that could also be read in the dark or just easily at a glance.

In the beginning of learning to play the guitar I searched and searched for nice clear information on how to play. I printed out all kinds of pages from the web, most only had half or two thirds of the info I was looking for. Or it was three chords I needed and 35 I didn't. So over the last number of years I have been working on putting together some nice clear charts with the information I have been looking for and making it nice and big so I can read it at a glance.

Notebook Music Charts for Guitar and Mandolin Chord Charts is Completed,
Ready for Using

I am pleased to announce I have finally completed my basic guitar and mandolin charts for the major, minor and 7th chords. Along with a guitar chart of all seven major keys with the I, VI and V chord fingerings illustrated. Plus some blank music pages for guitar and mandolin with nice spaces between the lines, I hate those really squished music pages. Each of these will fit nicely into your guitar jam books, ready whenever you need them. As I complete more I will keep releasing them.

So look over on the right column and sign up and download a sample, mandolin, banjo, ukulele and guitar major key charts. Check out all our charts at notebookmusiccharts.com
