Blank Chord Template

Is a blank chord template available that we can use to "create our own chords"?

Um... I don't think so.  Just draw a square and make sure you've got six lines in it.  wink

Art and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.

You can find blank chord sheets at

Live in the "now" - a contentment of the moment - the past is gone - the future doesn't exist - all we ever really have is now and it's always "now".

Re: Blank Chord Template

Here is a thread from the songwriting forum with a couple of links on how to do it in chordpro if you are looking to do it on your computer rather than on paper.

They are all over the web.  Just do a search

You can see all my video covers on
I have finally found happiness in my life.  Guitars, singing, beer and camping.  And they all intertwine wonderfully.

Re: Blank Chord Template

There's a curly brace tag format, but the syntax seems kind of bass-ackwards from normal chord notation, as the strings are numbered high-to-low, which is a pain for me:

(From the Help in edit mode)

   Define chords
   {define: chord fret s1 s2 s3 s4 s5 s6}

   Example: C# to be played like an A on 4th fret:
   {define: C# 4 1 3 3 3 1 1}

   The definition should be placed after songtitle/artist. Note that you will also need to place the chord as [C#] within the lyrics for the grids to be shown.

This should allow you to create custom chords in a song edit
