Update: Where to Get Free Chord Sheets

by Bruce Siegel on December 11th, 2013

For years, I’ve been telling my online students about Wikifonia.org. It’s been a great place to get free chord sheets for your favorite songs.

Well, Wikifonia has been unavailable for weeks, so it may be discontinued.

The good news is that there’s now an even better source for free chord charts: Ultimate-Guitar.com. It has everything Wikifonia did. (Except that melodies are not written out–but you don’t need that to play an accompaniment.) And Ultimate-Guitar has a much bigger selection of songs than Wikifonia did. Like Wikifonia, Ultimate-Guitar will also transpose (change keys) for you.

To the best of my understanding, Ultimate-Guitar is now fully legal, meaning it has some sort of arrangement with the publishers, and composers get paid for their efforts. So I now have no qualms whatsoever about recommending it.

Enjoy!

    Bruce, I was just getting ready to send a question about where did Wikifonia go? But, this blog just took care of that, thanks so much. I went thru the 1st starter song last night and love your methods of teaching. Thanks so much.

    As I buy your course, I realize the course is already on youTube.
    Is the videos on youtube are the same as the one Ibought, if it is,
    why hould we pay for this.
    Can you tell me about that please.
    In the mean time, I enjoy your course, just wondering if it is the same as youTube.

    Hi Diane! Sorry for the very late reply. My courses contain about 30 videos, and I make a few of those available for free on YouTube — about 5 or 6. That’s how people find out about my courses. The great majority of the lessons are only available to subscribers (although they too stream from the YouTube servers.)
