View Full Version : Updated chord wheel and chord builder wheel

Thanks to a uke player in Australia for pointing out to me that there was an Em missing in the middle wheel on the cutout page. The name was there, but got buried under a layer when I was editing it. I fixed it today. Here's a revised one:

And here's something else I made: a wheel for constructing chords:

It should be obvious how to use it: line up the key on the inner wheel with the I in the outer wheel and follow the lines for notes in that chord. If there are questions, post them here or email me. I'm open to suggestions to improve it, of course.

And yes, the collection of scanned vintage song sheets is still available for anyone who wants to learn songs from the 1920s and 30s.

Great stuff Ian, many thanks.
One issue I see is the text on the lower portion of the back of the large disk, the line spacing is messed up.

Thank you Ian.

Which file? It looks okay to me on my original, but the PDF might have been messed up in the upload. I can resend it - if I know which one.

Hi Ian,
sorry it's the Chord Builder, back of the larger wheel.
