DG's Chord Finder Chart
This chart helps you build chords by identifying all of the scale degrees surrounding the root. You can build chords with the root on any string — the chart covers the entire fingerboard. In addition to building root position chords, you can find inversions and alternate voicings. It is also very useful for building chord solos. And it helps you better understand the chords you already know, making it easier to identify what notes you can change for richer chords or for variety while comping. The chart is also great for bass players since the bottom four guitar strings are tuned the same as the bass (except an octave higher). Take a look at these examples:
Here's a section of the chart showing the root on the 6th and 1st strings.
Building from the root on the 6th string, here we have 1, 3, -7 and 9.
Add the 5th on the 2nd string for a fuller sounding 1, 3, -7, 9 and 5.
Lower the -7 to 6 for a 6/9 chord made up of
1, 3, 6, 9 and 5.
Add the Maj7 on top to get a chord with
1, 3, 6, 9, 5 and Maj7.
Or play the Maj7 on 4th string to get a chord with
1, 3, Maj7, 9, and 5.
Here's a ninth flat five chord containing
1, -5, -7 and 9.
Raise the ninth for a flat 5 sharp nine chord with
1, -5, -7 and +9.
Add a flat 13 for a chord made up of
1, -5, -7, +9 and -13.
Drop the flat five back to a three for a chord with
1, 3, -7, and +9.
Raise the flat seven to Major seven for
1, 3, Maj7, and +9.
Here's a great chord containing
1, 3, -7, +9, -13 and -9.
