I would like to start a personal chord book and wondered if anyone had done this and if they had any samples, ideas, etc. Thanks.

Hi Gary,

Welcome to the forum! I'm not sure if this will help but Justin Sandercoe (of justinguitar.com) talks about creating your own chord book here:


justinguitar.com - YOUR CHORD BOOK (https://www.justinguitar.com/guitar-lessons/your-chord-book-b2-904)


I don't recall if he talks about page layouts though - that's really up to you, you can organise things whichever way works for you!

There's a few documents in this section of the forum that you can take a look at, might give you some ideas, with any luck you might get some helpful replies too!

Thanks. That is where the idea came from as well as where I heard about this software.

Aha I should've thought I might be sending you in circles!

You'll find quite a few pages here, for example:

- https://forums.neckdiagrams.com/showthread.php/665-Four-string-EMaj7-Chords

You can also get ideas from lots of other users, such as Jens Larsen, although these are in PDF format (maybe he'd provide some .fbd files to open in Neck Diagrams if you contact him!)

..particularly the Drop2 voicings if you scroll towards the bottom of that page..
