Pages of Music, Chords, and Progressions

Chords and Progression | Music for Guitar | Strumming Exercises | Sheet Music | How We Do It

All of these pages have been scanned and optimized to increase download time...hence, they may appear a little blurry. Copyright laws have been observed. You may print these pages, but may not sale them. Our goal is to add at least two sheets of progressions and/or sheet music a week.

We are changing how we do this. It is a little more time effective to just create a template, and then write the chords, and time used in playing the piece. The page is then converted to a PDF file, this makes printing the page a little easier. Some of the pages are still in HTML form, but we are converting to PDF. You can help support us by downloading some free software.

Technical Specs: The material is scanned using a Xerox Documate 510 scanner (a great little workhorse with a sheet feeder, and reasonably priced.) The software used to scan is Corel Paint Shop Pro XI (sorry Adobe Photoshop...but this $59 app puts your $849 app to shame.) We do use Adobe Photoshop for some of the image editing. The images are then optimized with Macromedia Fireworks...this is one of the best optimazation apps available. Take Fireworks and Paint Shop and you save a lot. No need for the home user to throw away all of that extra money on Photoshop when everything could have been done with Photo Shop (yes, even the optimization)...in fact, use the money saved to buy yourself a digital camera, a nice printer, or the Xerox scanner! Currently using Windows Vista Ultimate.
