Which chords go together? 

In song after song, students notice that the same chords show up again and again.

The "Key of -" sheets are a good way to keep track of what are the usual chords to expect in any song, once you know what the main chord is.

There are sheets for all the major keys, A through G.

Blank tablature staffs for your own melodies, or your students' songs.

Guitar Tablature/Piano Staff Notation Charts 

See where each tablature "note" lies on a standard notation staff.

An extra guide on this page shows all the "black notes" (sharps and flats) as well!
