Click above on the chord type required, to view moveable fingerings for standard tuned guitar. The yellow numbers indicate the scale degrees included as part of the chord's voicing, for example any major chord always comprises the root, major third, and fifth.
There are lots of different ways to play chords, most of which don't require all six strings. When playing chords that have four notes fairly close together, it is often possible to play them on four adjacent strings, which also means the same voicing is available on other sets of four adjacent strings at different neck positions. Remember to dampen the unplayed strings to prevent their sounding too.
These fingerings are all moveable, up and down the neck, according to whichever chord is required - the root note is shaded grey. Some of the open voicings have tough stretches, which can be impossible on the lower frets - but those same voicings can be readily achieved by using alternate tunings!
And do remember, they won't all sound amazing in every style of music - so pick your time and place carefully if you want to build your audience.
Other instruments will be added soon.
