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. 

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!"





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.
