    I went to my first jam session recently and realized I should probably, I don't know, learn the notes on the fretboard as well as scales and chords. To help myself out, I combined a chart of the fretboard, a post about the box pattern that's often copied/pasted here, and a chart of chords arranged by key into a single-page sheet of notes. It's by no means comprehensive, but I feel like it's a quick and dirty way to at least get by.

    Anyways, they're attached in both XLS and PDF format in case anyone else finds them useful. (Note: The highlighted cells show the changes from the Major scale)

    Your chords by key table has errors - the vii chord in any Major key is not based on the b7th, but on the natural 7th. The chord is a minor7(b5) (which, by the way, is a much more clear description than is "half diminished"). So, the chords in that final column should be:

    B-7(b5)
    F#-7(b5)
    C#-7(b5)
    G#-7(b5)
    D#-7(b5)

    Also, you left out the remaining seven keys.

    Good tool, however.

    I would think some of the 3's and 7's (in minor, dominant, m7b5, etc) would be better shown as b3 and b7.
