    You may remember I posted my first two for proofreading. Well, I completely redid the second page (I believe there was some confusion with how I placed more emphasis on some chords when played without their 5ths than with them), and I've added a third page. For the moment I'm not going to make an additonal page with extensions, as I don't play them as often as these, but maybe I will in the future.

    These are all basically for my use- I put down the fingerings that I find most comfortable and usable, and in some cases if I couldn't find a comfortable way to play an inversion of a chord, I'd omit it altogether.

    If anyone would like to proofread them for any mistakes or if you have any suggestions for improvements, I'd be much obliged. Here are the monitor friendly-sized versions of the charts:

    It looks like you put a lot of effort into that, I would try and be more helpful, but I'm colourblind, so I have difficulty separating some of them apart. For example, that one right at the bottom, Minor Add9 3rd inversion, I can barely tell those three colours apart. Couldn't you do it with numbers instead?

    I have a different vision problem myself- I'm legally blind, so little letters and numbers are pretty useless to me as I can read them unless I'm very close, so bright or contrasting colors are the only way I can make them useful to myself.

    Oh sorry, that sounds worse than colourblindness. Well, whatever works for you..

    Nice work Bryan!

    Will there be a print-friendly version posted in the near future? :)

    Oh, and it appears the originally links to the charts are outdated and I can't edit my old post, so follow the links listed in my post a couple posts up.

    Nice chord charts if I get some time I will try to proof them. What I would do next of make charts of II-V-I of the chords that voice together nicely.
