Chord Chemistry for Guitar


Chord Chemistry For Guitar is not intended for the beginner as the knowledge of basic scale and fingerboard structure is assumed.

The information provided will help the guitarist to achieve two primary goals: Firstly, to understand conceptually how a given chord is constructed and secondly, how this conceptual understanding may be practically applied to the fingerboard.

Each chord section explains the theory and structure of any given chord. In addition, all chords depicted have been written in both standard and tablature notation.
