What guitar song chords belong together? These free guitar chord charts will show you the most common chord families.

Key of A guitar chords

Please scroll down the page for the download links.

If you've been playing guitar for even a short time, you've probably noticed that some chords always seem to be associated with each other.

D7 is (almost) always followed by G.

G7 is (almost) always followed by C.

C7 is (almost) always followed by F. F7...well, I could go on and on. 

Key of B guitar chord chart

It is not my purpose on this page to explain music theory and how to know which chord to play next.

Eventually, I'll put up a Circle of 5ths for anyone who wishes to refer to it, and I'll tell you all about its near-magical properties. (It's kind of a gee-whiz way to figure out musical relationships.)


Key of C family of guitar chords

Please scroll down the page for the download links.

There are lots of music theory sites out there on the web, many of which will tell you far more than you ever wanted to know.

Key of D primary & secondary guitar chords with fretboards

Please scroll down the page for the download links.

I will tell you that the I, IV, and V (1, 4, and 5) chords are enough for most songs such as church hymns and folk songs, with the ii, iii, and vi (2, 3, and 6) chords adding "color".

Key of E primary & secondary guitar chords

Please scroll down the page for the download links.

For now, here are the main groups of chords most beginning guitarists, especially folk and church guitarists, will find useful. 

Key of F primary & secondary guitar chords fretboards

Please scroll down the page for the download links.

Key of G primary & secondary guitar chords

The Adventures of Tonsta, Volume 1, is a book about a young boy travelling over mountains and fjords from village to village, encountering trolls and helping folk in distress.

The Adventures of Tonsta

A perfect read aloud storybook
for little boys or girls. 

The Adventures of Tonsta highlight the travels of a very young boy with a good heart, who goes about helping folk in trouble.  

With a red cap on his head and a sack of tools slung over his shoulder, Tonsta seems to meet people in distress wherever he goes.

Lots of trolls in this book - including one who gives him a Christmas gift!
