prototype for a family of fret fonts. this has been done before, but i wanted to try one. since there are so many chords, it is necessary to split according to logical groups. this is the first (AB), there will also be CD and EF. lower chords in lc and higher chords in uc. i think this organization will work, but if there are any guitar players, let me know what you think :)

A very attractive chord diagram font. Why do you have a mix of A♭ and G#?
Maybe you should have both or just the former?
I wonder how other chord diagram fonts map chords to characters.
And could the ♭ symbol be less b-like. The context makes it clear what it is but I'm easily confused.

@meek: i don't play :) i googled fret chords fonts and guitar chord fonts and only got a few results. most provide limited chords or seemed very complicated to use. there are many chord charts and i used this one to create this first set. i don't know if this one is the best or most accurate, so i think i need to do a little more research, but i was surprised there are not more chord fonts available and it seems like an under-served market. thanks for the feedback and i'll work on the flat :)

thanks afrojet fot the TP. i will eventually get around to the other sets in the family. still doing some research on all the varieties. i will probably do one with the basic 15 chords, then maybe a bar chord one, and then the others which would be: A-B, C-D, E-F-G. some will probably duplicate chords found in others, like the basic. but maybe it will be useful. thanks again.

Something like this maybe?

Plus, I think the reason why G# is used is because Abm has a Cb; a very obscure note. However, G#m has a B.
