Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

July 19, 2011 | Free fretboard chord template. New and improved!

ExFingerboard.jpg Found a cool chord you don't want to forget, or want to share with a friend? Use our free chord template. Print out the PDF file and make more blank copies for yourself when inspiration strikes!

One of our most popular downloads (next to our free FFcP exercises) has been our mandolin chord fretboard template. If you're wanting to map out or transpose a chord progression, you've got a blank chart to document your discoveries. You can print multiple copies or photocopy your original.

A problem we've run into is drawing out chords that reach beyond the 12th fret, so we've created an enhanced version with space all the way up to the 17th fret. We've also included fret markers at fret 5, 7, and 12. This should help you get the full power of the transposable nature of this wonderful instrument.

Explore some of the other helpful downloads, including the aforementioned FFcP studies. It's one of the most visited pages of the site.
