Content details


We are looking for:
- easy to remember MEMORY RULES visualization for Chord fingering for guitar
- can refer to chord diagram, or how the "hand looks when you hold it", or any other ideas that might help a beginner make an association between say "C chord" and how it is played on a guitar.
- we additionally value: funny / weird ideas, if there is a memory connection also for the letter (say C = crocodile), and if there is a chance to alter / adapt them for C major and C minor (say C major = happy crocodile, C minor = sad crocodile)
