Chord chart with notation?
« on: March 30, 2010, 09:40:44 PM »

I was just wondering if anything like this is freely available on the internet or not before buying something.

I have found a large chord chart with ~1000 chords including inversions and thought it would be cool to learn a few at a time and gradually build up my knowledge of them. However they are not given with notation only a diagram with a dot on the keys to be played, this is really annoying as when the chords go out of the view of the small diagram so the whole diagram changes, it just looks messy.

I was wondering if anything like this existed online so I could use that instead. I just liked the completeness of this resource as it had enough chords to satisfy my feeling of security regarding what I am learning actually being substantial.

Thanks for any answers.

I find it useful, but never find such a thing. I learned the principle('how to') and gradually learned all majors, minors, dominant 7ths, fully-diminished 7ths and it's inversions. What I often did in 1 month is 'C major, C-charp major, D major....' and appregios of them. I think you are confusing. I didn't know how to put this. Sorry for the confusing answer.

There's no point in learning chord shapes on piano as they don't transpose. Just learn the intervals. There's no point in learning individual chords or memorizing the notes.
