Notation Reference

Thanks Scott! Will there be any notification when it's posted or will we have to keep checking? Also, the white dots were on a chord fingering chart, not the tab staff. I believe you can see an example in the April issue on John Meyer's "Daughters". One chord shows a finger number for the dot and the next chord shows an open string while the dot in the third fret. BTW, I haven't explored the new site very far yet, but so far I like what it offers.

We will be adding our complete notation guide to the new site very soon. White dots in tab are unusual, but they indicate alternative fingerings -- to show that an artist sometimes plays a voicing one way and sometimes another.
