Parts is Parts & Charts is Charts:
My students want to learn a song. They may dig songs from several different artists. With the internet and all its resources, who needs books? A book of charts may cost $40 and have only one of the 10-20 songs that my student wants to learn. Firstly, I can hear the part. Anyone can, with training.
Often the most effective guitar chart is a Lead Sheet, or lyrics with chords. I make charts, or download one or more of the different chart types that are out there.
I use Microsoft Word to create simple Lead Sheets with chords over the words. These are generally the easiest to read while playing guitar and singing.
