Description: Learn guitar chords with Chordbook. Home of the best guitar chord learning tool in the world. Learn every chord quickly and simply.
Guitar Chords are a group of at least 3 notes played together, this means three different notes, i.e. notes with 3 different pitches. If, for example, you select an E major chord on the guitar chord generator on this page, you can see the 3 notes E, B and G# (Ab) make up this chord. Some notes can be expressed as either sharp or flat (enharmonic spelling), the notes sound just the same but the naming of them is decided by which key the song is in. You can find out more about this in our music theory section.
The Guitar Chord Book is intended to be as intuitive to use as possible, but we also have instructions below! also see the frequently asked questions page link on the right. Members can post and answer questions in the forum.
The chord book will load an E major chord to start you off. Everytime you click on the Root or Type it will load a new selection of guitar chords (inversion or voicings) that fit the selected Root+Type combination. The Roots show the available root keys from C upwards and the types show a variety of the most common chord types.
When you have selected a guitar chord root and type, the more link will appear and this will show more chords which may be different voicings or inversions of the selected chord and in different places on the fretboard.
