Music Information, Chords, Music Theory and Tab
I really enjoy music and I have played piano since I was young, had a few lessons and did up to grade 5, but now I just play for my own enjoyment. I also started playing guitar around 1995, although I’m not as proficient on the guitar as on the piano, I do enjoy it.
On my old shanemcdonald.org music section I had a dedicated subdomain which had information on music, MIDI files and the like. This page has been updated and you can find some of this information on this section.
I will have the chords and tab section which includes piano / keyboard tab and chords which I had transcribed (mainly for Queen songs). The MIDI and MP3 files I have carried across but I won’t be updating that section any more. There is also some other music related sections including information on musical equipment and music reference. Guitarists can find a set of basic Guitar Chords in the Guitar page. The Piano Chordmap system which I created allows you to generate up to 420 keyboard and piano chords for every key from Major to Minor 13th. The piano chord map is one of the most popular pages on the site so I hope you find it useful.
Chords & Tab Pages
The Chords & Tab section has now been migrated to ShaneMcDonald.ie and has a lot of useful chords all transcribe by myself.
