Volume 1 incorporates both creative and practical approaches to the construction of chords on the guitar. Guitarists of all levels and styles can benefit from this guide. The book is entirely self-contained in that all of the necessary music theory is presented in the first chapter of the book. (279 pages) Root-position voicings from triads (i.e., three-note chords) up to six-note chords are covered. Every chord family is represented as well as all of the basic embellishments and alterations. A comprehensive appendix contains completed examples and five well-known progressions found in pop, rock, blues, country, jazz, folk, and classical styles.
"Congratulations on a nicely presented work! It's a great concept and workbook..." - Howard Alden
