About Us

Darius’ Umbilical Chords was created by Darius Dunn in Sydney Australia and launched at the 1995 AMAC (Australian Music Association Convention) in Darling Harbour Australia. Darius saw many aspiring musicians including himself, frustrated in teaching and practice at not having a comprehensive reference tool where information could be obtained without searching through pages of material or fumbling around a mouse or remote control. At this point he began the arduous task of assembling all relevant material in order to compile the ultimate guitar reference chart. Darius' Umbilical Chords facilitates better practicing and understanding of relevant music theory. The chart will compliment other educational sources including, tutors, books and DVDs or can be used as a stand alone resource. It is presented in an accessible, user friendly, attractive format.

Since it was launched in 1995, many thousands of charts are now proudly displayed on walls of studios, bedrooms and educational establishments all over the world. We continue to receive great reviews from teachers and musicians alike and always welcome any feedback.

Darius has travelled extensively around the world and witnessed and accompanied great musicians from all walks of life. He was fortunate to be given a guided tour through the Gibson Guitar factory in Nashville Tennessee and is passionate about all things music.

Darius lives on the Central Coast of NSW with his wife and four children. He plays when ever time permits and is still providing tuition and workshops, which, when current are listed in the lessons menu above.

Many great minds have provided invaluable contributions to the chart and the website and cannot be thanked enough. Special thanks to Paul Lacey, Matty Grieves and Greg Hoyle who have provided their time, musicianship and brainpower over the years.
