Standard Notation Jig:  This tool comes from page 8 of the Complete C-G-D-A Edition.  You can use it to see how the notes of a tenor guitar, tenor banjo, and mandola match up with the notes of a piano.  You can use it to see which notes are in the same octave on different strings (any notes that have the same colored background).  If you're interested in using sheet music to play a melody, you can also use it to see where the notes on a treble clef are found all over the fretboard.

C-G-D-A CAGED Jig:  This tool shows shows alternate shapes to the ones in the tool above, but the idea is the same.  It still shows how to use what you can think of as C Major, A Major, G Major, E Major, and D Major chord shapes to play G Major chords all the way up the fretboard using the Essential C-G-D-A Edition's Key of G Major page.    

These same patterns can be used for ALL THE MAJOR CHORDS!

 Free Chord Builder (in color):  Click the image to the left to download this ten-page, interactive (hyperlinked) tool. It overlays colored circles over the Complete C-G-D-A Edition's Key of G Major/E minor page, so you can see how each of the six main chords in G Major are built all up and down the fretboard.  Each of the six chords has it's own page, showing all the locations of the notes that make each chord. There's also page that shows, all at once, where the notes from the 3 main Major chords (the I, IV, and V chords) are found all over the fretboard.  There's a page showing the three minor chords (ii, iii, and vi) simultaneously as well.
