The four vertical lines represent the strings; the horizontal lines represent the
frets. The black "dots" indicate where the fingers are to be placed, and the
numerals show which fingers are to be used. A zero indicates an "open" string
and is not to be fingered. The name of chord is placed above the diagram.
The slanting lines / / to the right of the chord diagrams mean that you play
the previous chord once for every slanted line.
TIPS ON FINGERING
Diagram No. 1 illustrates three notes barred with
a single note to be played on the first string. All
chords of this and like formation are actually fingered
like diagram No. 2. In other words, it is very awkward
to bar the 4th, 3rd, and 2nd strings without including
the 1st string, so, always bar all four strings. Only
the note on the 5th fret of the 1st string will be heard,
not the barred note behind it. The curved lines that
appear in the above diagrams are for the purpose of
explanation and have not been included in the songs that follow as the fingering
below each diagram serves the same purpose.
ALL CHORDS FOR THE SONGS IN THIS FOLIO ARE LOCATED
ON THE FIRST FIVE FRETS.
