    I posted this over in the Tenor guitar forum, but thought it appropriate to post it here as well:

    My website's music & tabs page - http://www.mjra.net/WillFly/tabs.shtml - contains tabs and chords for some pieces I've played on tenor guitar.

    Titles are marked as such. You might find something of use there.

    "So you'd like to... Learn to Play the Tenor Guitar"
    A guide by Steven Pyott (Brisbane, Queensland, Australia)

    A very thorough essay published on amazon.com that includes links to referenced items. (NFI)

    Nice to see Delmore Brothers stuff advertised in that link. I love the Delmores' music and Alton Delmore's autobiography is fascinating stuff.

    I've put together a basic introductory video to playing the tenor guitar in CGDA tuning which I've put on to YouTube. You may find it of interest - I've put it here as a reference.

    Some universal "Fancy Schmancy Chords" for tenors tuned in fifths.

    The white dot represents the chord's root, the note the chord is named for.


    As long as you can put that white dot on the right spot of your fingerboard, the rest should follow. Most of these are three note chords, and some can't be made to sound the chord's root!

    I don't use these very often, but it is a good reference.

    NOTE: The 6th and the Minor 7th are the same fingering, but the chord root has changed.
