Top critical review
on 16 July 2016
The choice of chord types (given in all 12 keys), are chosen in a way that even a seasoned player could easily discount two 3rds of the chord families as wasting space. For example a great deal of detail is given to very exotic chord types that even as an experienced guitar player I have not encountered once in 30 years playing, whereas a fairly common type don't get enough coverage. Very disappointed in this book. If chords types that would have practical application had been chosen, or at very least (and more logically), moveable chord shape families grouped, it might be a redeeming feature. This is an old school book without either a focus on what an experienced player could practically use to transfer skills to mandolin, nor for a new musician to have a clear reference to guide them, and help learn songs.
