Guitar Chords: The A♯/B♭ Chords

Prepared by Alan Humm

Chord files color and symbol key1

1 All fingerings should be interpreted as suggestions, not as requirements.

• Verticle lines are strings.
• Horizontal lines are frets.
• The double line at the top is the nut.

• The numbers at the top of each diagram are suggested fingerings.
• 0 on top means that string is played open
• The red Vs point to the lowest sounding roots.
• X at the top represents a string that is not played
• Curved lines in the fingering area indicate a barre (one finger holding down multiple strings).
• The dots are where you put your fingers.
• Hollow dots are alternate notes for the same chord.
x on the string means that it should be blocked, usually with the finger on the next lowest string.

Color code:
Red = root or 1st.
Dark Yellow = 2nd.
Green = 3rd.
Greenish Blue = 4th.
Blue = 5th.
Pink = 6th.
Purple = 7th.

Minors and majors are not distinguished by color, but they are predictable: Minor chords receive both minor thirds and minor sixths. Sevenths are minor unless otherwise specified.
