Many websites offer free printable guitar chord charts including Pluck and Play Guitar, Guitar Skill Builder, Guitar Chords Magic and Fret Jam. These sites do not require any membership or registration to print out the charts, although Guitar Skill Builder is set up as a fundraiser and welcomes donations.
Pluck and Play Guitar offers a basic chart with 16 chords, an extended chart with 126 chords and an ultimate chart with over 1,200 chords. Guitar Skill Builder provides basic chord charts, bar charts, left-handed chord charts, chords for mastering rock music and charts for playing the blues.
In addition to a basic guitar chart, Guitar Chords Magic features songs that help with learning to play the instrument, as well as bar chord charts, power chord charts, and a comprehensive review of DVD and CD guitar lessons. This site also sends customers The Ultimate Chord Chart eBook and one free guitar lesson per week in return for signing up to receive The Magic Guitar newsletter.
Fret Jam goes into extensive detail for beginners. For each chart, it shows numbers on the fingers of a hand and matches them to the numbers on the guitar string, which are played by each corresponding finger. It also gives tips on how to mute certain strings while playing others and teaches players how to change from one chord to the another smoothly.
