Book with online audio. A chord dictionary with a difference. Rather than just show chord shapes, a large portion of the book explains how to use chords and attempts to answer questions guitarists often have about chord shapes. This revised edition emphasises the practical and is even more useful to beginners, with expanded exercises and more audio. The multimedia component has double the number of tracks and is 30 minutes longer. The notation of the chord progressions is partly redesigned, making it easier to read. More chord types have been added to Chord Master's Matrix (dictionary) section, with new material about balanced chords and about effective chord voicing. The section about chords from famous songs is expanded with more examples of unusual chords, including one of the most famous examples, the first chord of "A Hard Day's Night." 255 pp.   More Details...
