    Default 3 Finger Chords

    Is there a chart of three finger chords as the two finger chords? If there is, where can I locate it? Thanks!

    I don't know of a chart. But I do know that this is a great resource. Mandolessons has helped me out a lot. I hope you find what you need there. He has a couple lessons on chords and such. Enjoy 🤓

    I learned the idea and some of the options from a Jethro Burns book from MelBay
    They are way more comfortable than four finger options, and if you control your pick, they sound great for chopping too.

    Thanks Mark.
    That's the Phil Vinyard sheet that I referenced above in post #3. (I couldn't figure out how to list it directly.) Farther down the referenced page, he adds a link that includes similar chords for both guitar & banjo.
