Is there a link I can be given that leads to a fairly complete chord chart? I do not read tab, but I can follow the grid chord patterns. I am looking for one that shows all the chord inversions up the next for each chord A through G up the neck. An online search was frustrating.

Me- I've played guitar for over 50 years, but arthritis did its thing and the banjo is much easier to finger, but the chord shapes are that much different, hence the request.

I play clawhammer style and think of chords and tunings in that space. I have attached chord charts for Open-G (gDGBD), double-C (gCGCD) and Sawmill (gDGCD) tunings. That may help you with your search for chords charts.

Sometime in the past year or so, I was in an online workshop with Evie Ladin on chord inversions. After that workshop, I created charts for chord inversions for G tuning and double-C.

I had wanted to share this in the past, but I couldn't find the time or place. Your request gives me that opportunity. If you plan to play Scruggs style, these charts may offer limited help. I suspect that there are others who may benefit as well. I hope so.

This is the site I've used in the past, but really, the charts David gave you probably enough.  Thanks for sharing, David.  I play a lot of Tony Ellis tunes in Double C, so having those 2 resources (chords and inversions) are super helpful

Agreed. That is one of the sites that frustrated me. I wanted to be able to do things like playing a C and then doing a run up the neck to a higher voicing of that C chord. Granted, I have been practicing this banjo for only a couple of weeks, but still, having those charts is going to be a help.

I hope my chord charts are of some help.
