Balalaika chords (folk)

Hi All,
Here is a table with basic balalaika chords which can be used to play most of native russian folk songs. Chords are valid for balalaika with folk fingering A-F#-D (meaning that on pictures below we have upper string is A, middle string is F# and lower string is D).

Please note that its not for "academic" tuning A-E-E!!

I'll put later some folk russian songs here. Enjoy.

I play balalaika and I am interested in the folk tuning. On the blog the chord charts did not show up. Can you email me those?
