Guitar Chords In The Key Of C Major And A Minor


Have you ever wanted to know what guitar chords you can play on each scale degree in the key of C Major?

Look no further because I have put together a huge list that shows you the chords you can play in the key of C Major / A minor. It's a pretty big list of chord charts with variations so I packaged it up into a downloadable PDF.

My chord charts might be slightly different than what you are used to so I wrote this short guide to help you HERE.
