Guitar Chord Charts

Welcome to my guitar chord charts page. Since so many of my students loved the way I write out my chord chard I decided to upload them to my website to  share with you. A lot of the songs are chord charts for very beginner to intermediate players. My specialty is taking songs and making them easier for beginner to play.

I have used all of these chord charts in lessons with students and they love them. Unlike most online guitar chord charts I go through my chord charts and make sure:

  • The correct chords are used, or I input easier version or harder chords
  • The correct length of the chord is reflected, so if it's played 2 measure you will see the chord twice, not once
  • Suggested strumming patterns are included, I will give simple and intermediate version if available
  • The chord changes line up correctly with the lyrics, important for those looking to sing and play at the same time

Organizing chords charts in this way helps student understand the music better and faster so that they can have more fun. While I still teach students how to read traditional sheet music, they seem to like the layout and organization of my guitar chord charts.

Once you have gone through a few of my guitar chord charts, you will see how simple they are to follow along with. I'll keep adding more and more chord charts month to month, so bookmark this page to keep checking back.

Chord charts are listed in alphabetical order by the Artist's Last Name, First Name.
