Frustrating book in some ways. I initially sought some increased enlightenment on chords and initially thought phew not another pattern book --> however initial thinking was deceptive and it is a well thought development program which guides the beginner and forces the more advance to stop and think about what is happening. As well as adding some very sound advice simply put. But patience will be needed.

Absolute best guitar book I have ever owned. Easy to understand, well written with great graphics and easy to read. Written by a guy who teaches & plays and understands that not everyone is educated in music. I just ordered my 2nd copy for my nephew.

This is almost as good as having my teacher's brain in a book. I read music very minimally and have only a tiny grasp of formal theory--this book makes sense to me in terms of practical guitar application. I will probably use it for as many years as my hands will work to play the instrument.

Understanding The Chords will teach you how to approach even the most complicated chords, or simply how to get more out of the ones you already play. I値l start by pulling apart the easy ones. By the end of the book you値l know how to find any chord you need. You値l know where chords come from, and you値l know where they belong. 

I値l even show you how to improvise a solo that really works.

Understanding The Chords is 218 pages, packed with illustrations and clear explanation. It's printed on 8 1/2 x 11 heavyweight paper with laminated covers for durability, and spiral bound so it lays flat and stays open on your music stand.
