Chord Diagrams: Triads with Added Notes

Today I’ve put together another set of chord diagrams in pdf format. Enjoy!

Arpeggio Diagrams

Today I’ve just posted a few pdf’s which show the CAGED shapes for major, minor, dom7, maj7 and min7 arpeggios. They also have the most common two and three octave fingerings.

Today I thought I’d post a pdf of a convenient chart of the most common open chord grips. Every player should be familiar with these simple shapes (even the slightly obscure ones such as 7sus4 chords) since they help develop more interesting movable shapes later on.
