Thanks OP, Do you know what the orange and purple colors in that PDF signify? I think the orange might just mean the key the chord is in but I see some of the purple notes shown above the nut in the wrong key unless that means non-standard tuning? i.e; some of those F# chords in the sample below the download link show a C above the nut signified where D would be in standard tuning....

Hi, Yes..The red/orange notes signify the root note of the chord. What you are seeing that looks like a C where a D should be is CX which is C double sharp which is a D. For instance in A# chords you get a CX where a D should be. If the note looks wrong see if there is an X next to it....Kind of hard to tell on some notes. Also , I must say that instead of looking at the A# chords you could scroll to the Bb chords which would be the same and might make more sense.

Okay. Thanks for that. Most of the chord charts I see have a system with the finger placement and the exes to mute the strings while the others are just played open without any markings. I guess it's just a different form of chart but I wanted to ask since it was new to me....

Oh yes don't confuse the X on a note dot with X to mute a string. X is used for both here but has different meaning. On a note dot you will see CX but to mute a string you will see just X.
