Notation Reference

Is there a music notation reference on this site? I'm looking for a comprehensive treatment of guitar chord finger charts and tab charts. I occasionally see notations used in AG that I don't recognize and for which no explanation is given in the issue. One recent example is a guitar chord chart with finger positions noted by both black dots and white dots. What's a white dot indicate?

Hey John, If you're having trouble with your subscription or the website, the best thing is to check the FAQ page, and email the appropriate person.

Scott- any thoughts about adding a member/AG forum for questions and suggestions about the new web home? Might save some time and frustration if we see a concern is already being addressed before we send emails about whatever we can't find or figure out how to get to. You follks have made a great start here, but no good web site is ever finished.

I'll post a note here when it's up. That's what I thought you were referring to. It's an unusual usage, but basically it's just showing an alternate fingering in the chord diagram. Glad you're liking the new site.
