Guitar Chord Charts (Archive)

Written by Guitar Chalk Editorial
This guitar chords chart listing is a collection of all the charts we've built for our chord and rhythm-related lesson. As the project is ongoing, not all of the chords in existence are accounted for. However, we do have a substantial library of charts and are adding to them continuously.
Whenever we publish a guitar lesson that contains chord info or theory, the chord charts we use in that article will be available here, as a PDF download. Enjoy.

How to Read Our Guitar Chord Charts
Most of the chord charts on this page read left to right, while some are rotated 90 degrees to the right and read top to bottom. Those charts were an older design, but can be understood the same way.
In most cases, our charts use horizontal lines to indicate six strings and vertical columns to indicate frets, as though you're looking straight down at the fretboard. Blue dots, Xs and Os are used to plot notes, muted and open strings.
