A GUIDE TO ALL THE MORE COMMON CHORDS IN EVERY KEY & UP TO 3 POSITIONS OF EACH

C C# D Eb E F F# G Ab A Bb B
Each page then follows a strict layout with all the main chords for each key.
major --- minor --- seventh --- Sixth --- diminished --- Augmented --- Major 7th
Minor 7th --- Minor 6th --- Augmented 7th --- 9th --- 13th --- 7th --- flattened 9th --- 13th --- flattened 9th
For each type of chord, there is a single fretboard with 3 positions shown for the chord using circles, stars and diamonds so that you can easily distinguish the different fingerings.
Being so thin, this book fits easily and safely into any gig bag or hard case. It is easy and fast to use and until (or unless) you need really obscure chords, it does its job magnificently. I've had my copy for over 40 years and I still rate it as the best chord reference book I've ever used or seen.
------------------------------ UPDATE 2014 -------------------------------
I cannot believe the sheer greed which causes sellers to ask for so much money for a book which is often easy to find in pre-used bookshops, on Ebay, or in charity shops. TOTALLY INDEFENSIBLE!
I actually came back to find this book to order 3 copies for placing in 3 guitar cases which will be handed on to my grandchildren. Obviously I didn't order copies here. Instead I put out feelers and within a week had acquired two copies from charities who sell online (total cost less than 7 pounds).
DO NOT BUY FROM SELLERS WHO ARE SO UNBELIEVABLY GREEDY - THIS BOOK IS NOT (repeast NOT) A RARE ITEM. And besides, there are plenty of alternative options if you want to find them. Not many use as simple a format as Keith Papworth - but that's no reason to fall prey to hawks.
Then I found THIS Book!!! My world opened up! If you want to teach yourself to play the Guitar!! THIS is THE Book!!!!!
