Interactive guitar and chords guide


Whether you're a novice or an advanced guitar player, sometimes you may find yourself sitting there in your living room strumming away, and suddenly you're stuck. How do I play that chord? How does that scale work?

Now Chordbook.Com comes to the rescue. Chordbook gives you a flash modeled guitar with more than 1300 guitar chords and inversions. Once you come up with a combination of chords that you like to experiment, you can even save it in My Chords, and hear it strummed. Choose acoustic or electric guitar, left or right handed guitar, and which key to start with. You can put a capo on the neck, move it up and down, and the virtual guitar will show you how it sounds. It shows you 7 different most commonly used scales so you can follow where to put your fingers on the neck. Click on a different key and itíll show you how to play that as well. Interested in learning about different types of tuning? No problem, it shows you right on screen. Still have questions? The site wonít leave you in a lurch. You can email your questions, plus thereís even a forum where you can talk all about your rock ní roll guitar problems. And best of all? Itís FREE!

Thanks John W, for the tip!

Pratt Johnson:

I have been looking for something like this for years. I took guitar lessons when I was a boy. My teacher taught me chords and music theory, but put it all down on loose sheets of paper. They are all gone now. This is great.
Thank you.
