Make Your Own Chord Charts 
for Guitar - use Excel

Make your own chord charts for guitar using a spreadsheet - see how one alert reader made his own!

Recently I got an email from a fellow named Bill Godwin, who makes his own chord charts for guitar using Excel software. I was intrigued and asked him to explain how he did it.

Please scroll down the page for the download links.

Bill sent me a couple pages, and I decided to show all of you what he sent, especially as a few of the chords, the minor 7ths and major 7ths for example, are not chords I have made charts for myself.

You can download these as PDFs, too:

Bill says, "It is fairly easy to make up chord diagrams in Excel! ...The cool thing about the Excel diagrams is that they are easy to make and easy to put the fingerings in there!"
