I used to call this the "Cheater's Bible" but it's not really cheating to look at a cheat sheet if it helps you play better. In time you will memorize the songs and you will not need the crutch any longer. Think of these sheets as jam session training wheels.
As I said already, be sure to read the instruction information page so that you understand how I put these charts together.
Note: Sometimes there will be more than one song which uses the same chord progression so if you learn one you have learned the others too! That, by the way, is why chord progressions cannot be copyrighted. Too many songs share the same chords. The same goes for song titles.
Have fun and happy pickin.
Thanks, Bradley Laird.
