(A reference for the rest of us)

Update
Okay, this will probably be a bit longer still, I'll try to get back to dedicating one set per day. I've also decided I might as well go all the way and do all the common variations up the fretboard as is listed in my chord book, which is three versions of each chord. I've started this with C# chords, I'll go back and do the rest when I'm done.

I will slowly be filling in these chords. Feel free to help out, all I ask is that you be 100% sure you are correct. Please /msg me if you have chords to add to the list.

Each chord finger is shown as

-1- (e)
-1- (B)
-2- (G)
-3- (D)
-3- (A)
-1- (E)

A number indicates the fret, an X indicates the string should not be played, and a O indicates the string should be muted, and a ? indicates that the string is optional.

Note ( - denotes a diminished chord, + denotes an augmented chord)

Return to the Everything Guitar Project

Take your basic 1-3-5 Major chord.
Take Eb.
Look up to the Eb chart, match the 1-3-5 notes to the ones on your fretboard.
This is pretty easy, really, once you got the patterns down.
