Chord Shapes :
---------------

for convenience  : a=10,b=11,c=12 etc

(So an E shape bar chord at the 9th fret would be 9bba99  )

Here's more "fun with guitar 'teachers'"
A guy came to me wanting lessons. He had taken lessons
from someone in the back room at the music store. He had
a sprial bound music staff notebook with hand written notes.

The teacher had added a line to the staff so that he had
six lines for tab. Somehow, on that tab, he had indicated
all the chromatic notes on each string. Difficult to duplicate
here in ascii, it was something like -

- 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 -
- 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 -
- 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 -
- 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 -
- 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 -
- 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 -

His hand written note was to "memorize the above". There
was no reference to "this is an E" or "This is an F#" or
similar. Just all the frets on all the strings.

Next page he had a crude drawing of the hand with the
finger abbreviations PIMA. Again, the note "Memorize this".

The guy was on his third lesson. He is an accomplished
piano and trumpet player, wanting to take up guitar.

I'm guessing he probably made a less than ideal choice
of teachers with that music store guy.

Lump

But he go an A+ on all the tests, and the teacher said he was very
good. $$$$ e
