Watch the Following Charts Part 2 online guitar lesson by Stu Hamm from Stu Hamm U: Bass Basics

Here is the final product in all its glory. I am going to play “Brad’s Boogie” while we look at the chart and follow along. There are as many different ways to write charts as there are musicians, but there are also some basic rules that everyone follows that allow us to communicate musically. So after discussing how we learn the song and write the chart, here we follow along. Once you get comfortable writing charts it will be so much easier to get your ideas across to other musicians, especially if you write as well, so that you can just hand them a road map to the music that you want to play and at least you will all be starting on the same page…literally.
