"A very comprehensive book containing chords from the beginning stages and beyond. Everything is very well explained with no stone left unturned. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who's starting out with the guitar." -- Nigel Elliott, Guitarist & Tutor (N.Ireland) Guitar Chords for Beginners contains 65 different chords arranged in easy fingerings. Technique: Fretting hand technique for playing guitar chords is looked at in detail with diagrams. Where necessary, some chords are taught incrementally because taking on only the harder aspects of a chord’s fingering first means our hand is freer to adjust. Other chords are shown with different fingerings for you to choose which you prefer. Playing guitar chords may seem like a contortion for the hands of the beginner so there is some basic guidance on stretching to keep the hands flexible. Audio and More: Each guitar chord has a downloadable audio example enabling you to hear if you have played it right, or to hear what you need to work towards. There is an introduction to moveable power chords and barre chords, in which barre chords are shown as easier cut-down versions of full barre chord shapes. At the back of Guitar Chords for Beginners there is a list of suggested songs that contain chords from within the book. Grab a copy today! "I like what’s been put together! The information covered in technical issues for beginners especially explaining the difference between chords on piano and guitar is great. I think starting with the small position chords for C and G etc and building up to full position is also really important for beginners. The picture diagrams of hand position is a nifty feature, I know lots of beginners respond more to visuals and will often revert to looking at the hand pictures rather than the chord diagrams. Also think the added audio clips are a great feature so students can compare the sounds of their chords with the audio for reference. There could be a couple of chord progressions at the end of each section (Apart from the song suggestions at the end of the book) and strumming patterns. That would be an added feature that I think could work nicely, although this would make for a larger book and it is only £1.99 for the eBook. Otherwise I think what’s been put together is great :)" -- Anthony Bierman, Bmus(Hons) Contemporary/Jazz Guitar (South Africa) "Looks fab. I particularly like the different ways of playing the A chord. The physical warm-up exercises for flexibility are also good. It is good that movable major and minor barre chords are shown as partial versions to make them initially easier, and beginners might find extra interest where near the back of the book easy open versions of other more exotic chords are shown, such as Dm(maj7), the "James Bond" chord." -- Campbell Murray, RGT & MU Registered Tutor (Scotland)

The guitar is the most popular instrument in the world yet most students of the guitar are self taught. This book is a comprehensive for guitar students who have no prior musical training. No matter what type of guitar you play, this book will give you the information you need, and trouble shoot the various pitfalls that can hinder the self-taught musician. The author knows from over 25 years of teaching experience that students form most of their good and bad habits in the first six months of practicing. It is therefore extremely important to use a method book that clearly and concisely covers the important subjects of proper playing technique, tuning, picking, strumming, music theory and rhythm. Furthermore, the only way a student can remember the information learned is to apply it. The hardest part of learning the guitar for a student is switching between chords. This unique method book contains chord progressions using both "open" and "barre" chords that gradually take a student from a beginning level to an advanced level. The publisher's website also has mp3 and midifiles to be played along with, for developing the strumming, time and feel for each chord progression. The chord progressions presented are commonly found in hard rock, rock, folk, blues and country, giving the student a solid harmonic foundation in all these styles. This method book not only gives you pages of pictures but also gives you access to video clips via the publisher's website to demonstrate playing basics in action. The Muse-eek Publishing Company believes the education of a student shouldn't stop with the purchase of a book, therefore our website, offers a FAQ page where students can write in to the author with questions that may and a free "member's section" where students can download other learning materials to further their education.

“All the books out now telling you how to play don`t mean a thing. What you feel is what you should be playing, not something someone else wrote down. All I can say is learn the fundamentals on your guitar, get to know your guitar, and don`t get a big head. There`s always going to be someone else better. Just play what you know, what`s inside of you” Pee Wee Crayton “Guitar Player”, July 1977 This book is all about fundamentals - intervals and chords. Congratulations, you have a new amazing hobby - guitar! You already memorized basic chords or played few favorite songs. Now you want to understand more about chords. What is actually behind C Major chord in a simple handy position on the first fret? Why the same chord is also located on the third fret? Where can I find more C Major chords on the neck, and how many these chords totally on the neck? Intervals, triads chord theory looks boring and complex? For me - too. After reading the book you’ll be able to build Minor, Major and Dominant chords from any root note on the fretboard. For most cases - this is more than enough at the beginning of your guitar journey. No more learning by rote, just understanding through a visualization and practice. What exactly is behind Minor, Major and Dominant chords? What are their basic building blocks, and how can I create my own shape of the chord if I forget the chord diagram? The chord theory is not a rocket science. This book explains it through the very simple bricks - the intervals. You are the guitarist, and that’s why you want to understand the chord theory using the fretboard. Not the piano keyboard, as many other books referring to. The expected result will be much deeper if you practice all the concepts with your instruments in a hand and notebook with a pencil. Book diagrams -> finger memory -> singing the notes -> draw on your own. This is the fundamental way of learning basic music concepts. Every chapter demonstrates one of the elements of chord construction. Finally, we’ll put together all the pieces in one picture. And you’ll grow your skill. You can choose any direction in a world of guitar in future - rhythm guitar or solo. And you1ll see these basic elements everywhere. Table of Contents: Root Notes - Root notes on the neck - Open strings root notes - Practice tips for the root notes memorization - Root notes check-list Perfect 5th (P5) - Perfect 5th across the neck - Perfect 5th inversions on the neck Major 3rd (M3) - Major 3rd across the neck - Major 3rd inversions on the neck Minor 3rd (m3) - Minor 3rd across the neck - Minor 3rd inversions on the neck Minor Seventh (m7) - Minor 7th across the neck - Minor 7th inversions on the neck Triads - Major Triads -- R-M3-P5 -- P5-R-M3 - Minor Triads -- R-m3-P5 -- m3-P5-R -- P5-m3-R Building the Chords - Chord formulas - Major Chord - Minor Chord - Dominant chord What is the next? - More Intervals and Chords - Fretboard logic and intervals foundations - Chord progressions - Scales and Arpeggios - Useful free online resources About Notes

Neben dieser Zielsetzung überprüfe ich auch ein Beispiel, das er zum Abschluss seines Textes gibt, um seine Thesen noch einmal zusammenzufassen. Außerdem stelle ich eine kurze Erklärung seiner Theorie voran. Zugunsten der besseren Verständlichkeit werde ich auf die in der Sprachphilosophie und in der Logik üblichen Abkürzungen weitgehend verzichten.
