Symecord has a number of presentation options with 2 basic formats. The expanded format uses columns or rows to mimmic frets, and each position is graphed in the appropriate spot. The compact format uses a single column or row, and positions are numerically indicated on the note form. Symecord can be written in any direction by simply maintaining the 12-hour string-stem clock pattern and reorienting the time and fret axes.
Be as particular as you like with this notation. If you don’t like detailing timing, then skip it. Don’t want fingering labeled, forget about it. Sustains smuhstains, you know what it sounds like. Grab a napkin, notebook paper, graph-paper or a symecord board (coming soon…) and go nuts.
