"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)

-100 Top Quality Blues Licks- -Complete Method To Learn the Guitar Neck- -Over 1hr of Live Examples and Audio for FREE Download- Whether you want a complete method to learn blues guitar or just a set of100 excellent blues guitar licks, this book has you covered. Most guitarists stay locked into the same patterns and scale shapes for years, unable to break out of the habits and licks they first learnt as a beginner. This leads to creative stagnation, boring solos and a sense that something will always be missing from their playing. Ask yourself this:- When you solo do you normally go straight to your first pentatonic box shape? - Do you normally play in a limited range of 'easy' keys, like A, E, G and C? - Would you like to have complete freedom to visualize and play in any key, in any position on guitar? - Do you only use minor pentatonic scales, or rarely use rich sounding modes to enliven your playing? If the answer to any of the above questions is yes then this book is definitely for you. This book helps you spread out your playing all over the guitar neck. It frees you from playing the same ideas over and over again. This book spurs creativity byopening up the neck and most importantly, it teaches you an incredibly strong visual method to 'hang' scales and licks off 5 easy to remember chord shapes. The CAGED System for Blues Guitar covers both Major and Minor Pentatonic Scales,The Blues Scale and The Mixolydian Mode. With 25 licks for each scale covering all 5 positions, you'll never be short of something interesting to say on your instrument. Contained within are the tricks and secrets that professional guitarists use to unlock the neck and always have something new to play. The most important concept is theCAGED system and it helps you to see the fretboard like the back of your hand and to easily play in any key in any position. This isn't a book just about scales. There are over 100 blues guitar licks in different styles that you will memorise easily, and can form the basis of your new, improved solos. You'll learn tohang these off each chord shape, so wherever you are on the guitar you'll never lose the groove. Each lick is demonstrated with an individual audio example which you can download for free fromwww.fundamental-changes.com – There is over an hour of audio included and 8 tailored backing tracks.This is the method taught at the London College of Music's Guitar Institute and I'm very happy to share these powerful concepts with you in my book. Have fun, and good luck! Joseph Alexander BA Honours, Dip.HE
