Once you have mastered all the basic open chords in my doc, you should be able to automatically know what fingers to best use for a 'new' chord. It will pretty much be obvious as time goes on. Remove an index finger here, add a pinky there.

You may, as time goes on find better fingerings than those suggested for the open chords - For example, I generally now use fingers 2,3 and 4 for a standard G chord instead of 1,2,3... I find there is a lot less movement involved when switching from A or C to G. And, due to my stubby fingers, I generally use fingers 2,3 and 4 for an A as well... or barre it.

But... you will find what works for you.

Whoops. Uploaded that doc too soon... noticed a few mistakes after uploading.

Fixed a few things, and added movable barre chords for 7th and Minor 7th chords.

Please download this one if you already downloaded it.
