Blank Chord Boxes, Fretboards, and Tab
There is no counting how many times I have turned my fingers from my ‘ukulele to a pen when I needed to wrap my mind around something. Sometimes it’s best to get off the strings and look at things from another angle. That’s where a big stack of blank fretboard, chord diagrams, and tablature can come in handy. Trust me – it beats drawing the lines yourself.
Some uses I’ve found for each included with the link:
Chord Diagrams (8×4)
Writing out a box diagram version of a song with many different chord shapes, remembering new or cool fingerings, notating scales.
Quickly notate the notes to a song, picking part, chord sequence, arpeggio, scale, etc…
Tablature and Standard Notation
For relating notes on the fretboard to their pitches as they appear in standard notation. Great for notating fingers on tab and note duration on the staff.
Circle the notes of a certain scale, chord, arpeggio, or find all locations of one note as fast as possible.
Blank Fretboard Chart
Fill in the blanks to memorize the notes, find arpeggios, write out multiple inversions of each chord.
I really like having a notebook where all my ideas are in one place. If that’s your cup of tea, something like this ‘ukulele staff and tab paper
would be very nice to have.
Another cool addition would be a blank chord stamp like this:
If you need highly customizable standard notation sheets, blanksheetmusic.net is a great, free resource.
