Hello, this looks like a great forum!
I was watching a video talking about a cool Fela Kuti song called Water Get No Enemy. It is in a style called Afrobeat and is generally chordaly very simple but with amazing grooves.
The chords to the song are just Fm7 and Ebm7 and I think the key is Ebm (?). The guy in the video says this is a iii - ii progression. However while I understand the degrees of a scale why is Fm7 a iii and Ebm7 a ii as surely Eb is the i (tonic) and F is the ii diminished in Eb minor scale? So why in this case is the Eb iii and the F not a diminished chord but a m7?
This is the tune by the way, the chords I am talking about kick in about 1.17 into the song.
Video I made to show how to easily change between the E D A chords. Minimal finger movement is the key. Your first finger never leaves the 3rd string when changing between all 3 chords. All it does is slide between the first and second fret. The other fingers move minimally between strings.
I have a blog where I discuss music theory, and I’d like to show guitar fingerings when visitors mouse over certain notes (similar to what Ultimate-Guitar does with its songs - http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/b/bob_marley/no_woman_no_cry_crd.htm).
I can create each chord from scratch as an image, but this is very time consuming.
Is there any open source or commercial software that allows this? I’d especially like one that includes sounds and inversions.

I am new to guitar however i have learned some chords like E,Em,G,C,A,Am,D,Dm.. I can play some songs as well.
my question is how we need to keep our finger on string positions.
for example. take an Em chord. why we need to keep exactly on the specified string using 2 fingers
is thr anyway i can get some tips or learn on these? or what is the trick.
in guitar formula EADGBE we are keeping our 2 fingers on AD ( 2nd fret ) how it is relating with Emin.. Please help
so I have somewhat dumb question. unlike E or A chords for example where the fingers are close together, there are chords like C (again, just an example) where the fingers are kind of spread out. I'm having trouble with these. I mean, playing the chords is fine, but changing between chords quickly is what I'm having trouble with. I can't move my fingers into position all at once, I end up doing it one finger at a time which takes too long.
are there any tips/tricks/practice methods that can help me?
I've practice some chord changes, between Dmajor and Cmajor for example, but it doesn't seem to improve.
I'm a girl btw, so maybe my shorter fingers have some part in the problem, but I can't really change those...
