One Page Guitar Scales and Chords

There are of course already a near infinite number of guitar fretboard studies available, and scads of 5,000 Guitar Chords and Scale books. What’s unique about this spreadsheet I put together is that it’s a one page reference. It helps if you first memorize the fretboard notes, but from there the “number system,” probably a simplification of the “Nashville system,” provides an efficient map for chord and scale fingering possibilities. I also wanted to learn how to attach a .pdf file to the blog. Click link below and check it out.

      The risk in this sort of thing (the spreadsheet, analysis, etc.) is that it’s probably better just to play, to internalize the information, in your fingers!

      It’s best to leave it out, pick it up as you walk by, a few minutes, don’t expect too much.
