Hi all.
I want to show you the chord book I've created for a CBG tuned CGC (key of C).
Basically includes all the possible chords you can make given 19 frets and a finger span up to 5 frets for each chord. That means a lot of choice for any given chord ;-) The notation is very intuitive, and there's a table of contents to help you find what you are looking for. As you can imagine It's a very big book: over 400 pages mainly because of the pictures. Anyway, if you are interested in chord books for other tunings just let me know, I'll see what I can do.

Update:
I've fixed the title of the book (I've forgot to put "The") and I've also updated the table of contents to save pages.
I have another book coming out soon about scales. It'll be part of "the ultimate series" and will be completely free like this one.
I want to make also variations of these books tailored for the most common tunings out there, like GDG, AEA, etc... but only if you are interested.

If you like my books and find them useful consider making donations:

Thanks.

thanks, very helpful
This is incredibly comprehensive. It will encourage exploration just by forming different chord shapes to see how they sound. Furthermore, because there are so many inversions of the same chord, it will make finding a suitable voicing easier when using a fake book. You put a lot of effort into this project and I believe it will be greatly appreciated by the members of our CBG community.
Thank you for sharing. Enjoy, Keni Lee
Very cool. Thanks for taking the time to create this and share it.

Thank you all for your comments.

Thanks for spending the time to produce this book and for sharing it with other CBG ers in the Nation ...
GDG!

I suppose this could be done with almost nothing but search-and-replace? :-)
