standardizing chromatic chord layouts for the new player

Teaching would be a lot easier if all the new players used the same chord layout.

Of course, all our lives would be easier if new instruments were done at the factory with a more popular chord layout.

We also have layouts being recommended that don't really give the new player a good direction, missing a whole segment of the autoharp's capability.

It just won't do to have diatonic demigods being authorities on how to setup a chromatic autoharp. The following article attempts to put a finer point on it all, showing how at some point the idea of what a de facto standard should be went off into the weeds and how we can recover.
