ATTENTION:  I've learned that Windows 10 (and possibly 8) is rescaling the image so it prints at the wrong size.  There are several ways to fix this.

Option 1:  Download for free.  Install it*.  Save the guitar color pattern (the above image) and Open it with  Go to File and Print.  It should print correctly.   * will be downloaded as a zip file, which you might need to extract first.  Google the term .zip file extraction. resize

Sorry, I will be making a comprehensive fix this week.  Today is 1/17/2018

If you're confused about how to use this pattern, go to my excellent music Theory page. 

Use it with the color sheet music and keywheel.
