Why is it that there's no E# on the chords? And there's also no B#? Weird...

E# is actually F and B# is C. This is easier to figure at if you look at piano keys. If you look at the piano keys, there are no black keys between E and F and B and C. Which means there is no E# or Fb (flat) or B# or Cb. The guitar chords follow the same scale.

I wish! I used to study the piano, but have not graduated to a full blown musician. I can play some guitar (just rhythm, not lead or base), but I've been busy, so there's not much practice. You're welcome

E# is the same as F. B# is the same as C. To "sharp" a chord means you take it up half a step. There is also no C-flat because that is B natural. And then of course F flat is E.
