7 Easy Tips for Reading Guitar Chord Charts

You don’t need to learn to all the ins and outs of music notation to play the guitar, but you should learn to read guitar chord charts. A guitar chord chart, also known as a guitar chord diagram, is a visual representation of a chord. They show you which finger goes where and on what string to place them. Once you learn what the lines, number and circles mean guitar chord charts will be a breeze.

Here are 10 things you’ll need to know to start reading guitar chord charts.

Visualization

The grid you see on chord charts contains six vertical and five horizontal lines. They represent the guitar fretboard. If you’re are having trouble visualizing this, hold the guitar in front of you so that the strings are facing you. When you do you’ll see that the chart represents the same view that you now have of your guitar, with the strings running vertically and the frets running horizontally.

Vertical Lines

The vertical lines on the diagram represent the six strings on the guitar. The leftmost line represents the sixth string – the low E string. It’s the thickest one. It’s followed by A, D,G, and B. The thinnest string that’s furthest to the right is the high E string.

Horizontal Lines

The horizontal lines shown on the chart represent the metal frets on the guitar. The first row of boxes represent the first fret, the second row represents the second fret, and so on.

Chord Name

The letters placed above a diagram represent the chord. As a beginner, you will most likely be playing major and minor chords, without all the fancy chord extensions.

Black Dots

The dots on the chord chart shows which fret to press down on and which string to place your fingers on to play a certain chord. Sometimes numbers are added. These numbers correspond to the four fingers of your fretting hand. Fingers on your left hand are numbered from 1 to 4, with #1 being the index finger, #2 being the middle finger, #3 being the ring finger, and #4 being your pinky. A T indicates that your Thumb should be used.

X’s and O’s

An “X” above the bolded nut mark means that you shouldn’t pick or strum a certain string. An “O” means to play the string open.

Barre Symbol

Barre chords are chords that use only one finger to hold down multiple strings simultaneously – usually the index finger. The symbol for barre chords is a curved or solid line placed above the nut or running through a fret from the first note to the last note.

Cotton-Eyed Joe | Easy Guitar Sheet Music (Notation & Tab)

Cotton-Eyed Joe is an American folk song. It was popularized by the Swedish Eurodance band, Rednex, when they made their 1995 debut studio album, Sex and Violins. The song was an international hit – particularly in Norway where it stayed in the number one spot for 15 weeks. It also took the No. 25 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100. Cotton-Eye Joe remains a popular choice for weddings, and at sports arenas.

The origin of the folk song is unclear, however, American folklorist Dorothy Scarborough in her book, “On the Trail of Negro Folk-Songs” (1925), claimed that the song originated in Texas where negroes could be heard singing it on plantations.

This digital print sheet music edition of Cotton-Eyed Joe is arranged for the advancing guitar student with at least two years of lessons. It’s a three-page arrangement that features traditional notation and tablature, and there’s an mp3 file on the site that students can listen to as they practice.

Lyrics for ‘Cotton Eye Joe

Do you remember a long time ago,
There was a man called cotton-eyed Joe.
There was a man called cotton-eyed Joe.

I could have been married a long time ago,
If it hadn’t been for cotton-eyed Joe.
If it hadn’t been for cotton-eyed Joe.

Old bull fiddle and a shoe-string bow,
Wouldn’t play nothin’ but a cotton-eyed Joe.
Wouldn’t play nothin’ but a cotton-eyed Joe.

Play it fast or play it slow,
Didn’t play nothin’ but cotton-eyed Joe.
Didn’t play nothin’ but cotton-eyed Joe.

Don’t you remember a long time ago,
Daddy worked a man called cotton-eyed Joe.
Daddy worked a man called cotton-eyed Joe.

Where do you come? Where do you go?
Where do you come from, cotton-eyed Joe?
Where do you come from, cotton-eyed Joe?

Come for to see you, come for to sing,
Come for to show you my diamond ring.
Come for to show you my diamond ring.

Russian Sailor’s Dance (Glière) | Easy Guitar Sheet Music (PDF)

Russian Sailor’s Dance is a Russian folk song more commonly called Yablochko in its native language. The word Yablochko literally means “little apple” and it is of chastushka song and dance. The song became well-known when its choreographed version appeared in the 1927 Reinhold Glière’s ballet production “The Red Poppy”. The English version of the song’s title was developed when it caught on in the West. Although the title has the word apple in it, the song itself has nothing to do with it. Instead, the verses of the song referred to the political issues that were rampant at the time.

The Red Poppy or sometimes referred to as The Red Flower, of which Russian Sailor’s Dance was part of, is a ballet in three acts and eight tableaux with an apotheosis. It was the first Soviet ballet with a modern revolutionary theme. The musical was about Russian sailors, particularly its captain, who rescued overworked Coolies from its harbormaster. A certain woman witnessed this act of kindness and gave the captain a red poppy as a symbol of her love, thus its title. It was also because of this musical that Glière became a recognized composer. Due to the song’s popularity, several Soviet dance troupes include it in their repertoire.

This digital print sheet music edition of Russian Sailor’s Dance is arranged for the advancing music student with at least two years of lessons. It’s a two-page arrangement that features traditional notation and tablature, and there’s an mp3 file on the site that students can listen to as they practice.

Minuet in G by Bach | Free Easy Guitar Solo (Notation/TAB)

The Minuet in G is attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach, a German composer and musician of the Baroque Period — a period or style of Western Art Music composed from approximately 1600-1750.

Johann Sebastian Bach was born in 1685 in Eisenech, Thuringia, Germany. His father, Johann Ambrosius Bach, was the director of the town musicians, and all of his uncles were professional musicians. His father probably taught him to play the violin and harpsichord, and his brother Johan Cristoph Bach taught him the clavichord and exposed him to a considerable amount of contemporary music. Johann Sebastian Bach is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor.
