Spent a couple hours this weekend working out chord charts for gbe tuning.  I got Major, minor, dim, aug, and 7 chords.  All the 7 chords are minus the root, since I've only got 3 strings to work with.  The chords work though, especially if you have another player nearby to pick up the root in the bass.

 

Right now it's literally the only thing up on CigarBox101.com, but I'm hoping to add more content over the next several weeks.  Anyway if you're tuned to gbe this ought to at least get you started.

If anyone's interested I could also do similar charts for other tunings.  Just let me know.

Do let me know how the charts work out for you,

These cord charts are wonderful...now I can actually get a tune out of this thing...now we need some sort of  chart for the notes found on a regular scale...to pic out a tune.Using the same GBE tuning.
