    Why are all the “C” chords wrong (they’re all C/B) in the C to A bass line progression?

      Hi Wes

      My fault, I’m afraid. I didn’t do a good job proofing the charts. Should be fixed very soon. Thanks for your patience.

    You may want to look at the D – D/C# – D/C progression’s charts as well. They all appear to be D/C.

      Hi Larry

      Those should be fixed soon as well. Apparently the software that I used to create these chord charts automatically locks itself into “chord families” and even though I was seeing the correct versions in my original manuscript, the moment I exported it for publication they switched to what you have seen.

      Fortunately I’ve managed (I hope!) to sort it all out. Although (unfortunately) it took the better part of the last three days to do so!

      Thank you (and all of our readers) for your patience in this matter.

      Looking forward to chatting again.
