What is missing from the endless chord charts for learners, or any guitarist for that matter, is a list or chart of progressions. Even the simplest song has progressions, take the Velvet Underground at their most basic, one chord burbling away.......for twenty minutes.......then a chord change, maybe another......then back to our comfortable home chord. A progression.
This book is the key to making musical sense of the nuts and bolts of musical composition.
Throw your chord books away, because unless you have a sound knowledge of music, they are useless.
By all means aquire that knowledge, but if you want to play songs, and SEE how those songs work, then buy this book. It's so good I've bought it for friends, other guitarists, whom I've wanted to help move to a different level. This is a very inspirational book, and often you will be thinking...."oh so they're the chords to that song". Lots of fun 10/10
