First off I would like to say a huge thank you to Justin for the wonderful resourse that he has produced. I recently decided to re-learn guitar as I'm self taught and had bough a new guitar after Christmas. (Sire R7 dreadnaught with zebra pream breakout box).

As J's ethos is "Practice what your poor at..." I decided a spreadsheet would be useful to identify the changes that need work.

The spreadsheet covers all the chords taught in the beginners course except for the power chords.

It uses conditional formatting to produce a 'Traffic Light' system that identifys the weaker changes at a glance

There is also a comment on each chord that can display the chord diagram for the chord (That's why no power chords as your site doesnt have a chart for each chord).

Once you have all 555 changes 'In the green' you can amend the variables that control the traffic light system and 'Raise the Bar' and then easily see which changes need further work.

If you think this might be useful let me know and I can send it to you 

Am I allowed to post it directly ?

I'd find this really useful too! If you can't post via the forum I'd be happy for you to email me direct. I was actually looking at making something similar myself so will save me some valuable time  :)

While I think it's a great idea to be organized about your practice it's really important to understand that you will not need to practice all mathematically possible pairings of chords!!

Many combinations will be useless practice (except for the general increased dexterity it will surely give you) because not all combinations occur in actual music. You will learn more about this later when you dive into music theory a bit more.

Its a useful tool - I just pared it down to the chords I am currently using. Very easy (for anyone with just a hint of Excel knowledge) to add more later. But it did give me a nice start on easier tracking. But then, I live and breathe Excel most days, when I'm not on my bike or playing!
