Worksheets for guitarists do exist beyond music theory and pages of chord charts with scales you have to memorize.
If you’re a songwriter, you’re always looking for an edge – worksheets are a great way to help hone your skills, find some quick wins when writing, and keep you focused on the process of writing.
While there are a number that just aren’t helpful, Tom Slatter of Songwright has some nice songwriting worksheets and tips on his blog.
I’ve also included a few from other sources like Gibson Guitar (full disclosure – I own a few).
