This lady is a genius in understanding and in being able to present this subject in a manner that is clear and comprehensible to her audience. I studied this subject a long time ago "the hard way" from stodgy old books. I wish this book had been available then!

This book is like the "Readers Digest" version of chord theory. I expected so much more than that.
