This book is all about chords, how to play them & what to call them. Included is a detailed examination of all the essential theory involved with playing and writing contemporary guitar music in the most musical and logical way possible.Those who are self-taught traditionally concentrate their efforts on learning to play songs. This means faithfully reproducing guitar parts found on recordings and rhythmically strumming the chord changes in songbooks.

This is exactly the information revealed in the pages of this reference manual.It contains all the essential diagrams, drawings and information concerning theory, chords, and their uses in one logical, easy-to-read book. ©1997, 104 pages.
