The Guitar Chord Slide Rule

This neat little folded-sleeve-with-insert affair is an adaptation of the slide rule that comes with PlaneTalk - The Truly Totally Different Way of Seeing the Guitar Fretboard.

Download the PDF, print it all out, cut the windows out, fold it together and voilà ... a handy chord finder showing the positions of all the main barre chord shapes. Not only will it help you to position the various shapes on the fretboard, but just by watching, will teach you a huge lesson on how the guitar works.

It comes with 12 inserts showing the main flavors of the A and E form barre chords:

Major — minor — major7th — minor 7th — Dominant 7th — sus4
