                  INTRODUCTION


The aim of this little book is to not only enable you to play guitar chords but to also remove the mystery of what are chords and understand and know how they work.  If you read the first part of this book about practical theory, hopefully this will shed a lot of light on understanding the basics of chords for any musical instrument, not just guitar

By using this book you should also be able to understand how to find and make any chord yourself

On the guitar there are many ways to play any one chord so a bit of knowledge can go a long way

Basically chords are related to the major scale and have a formula.  

All the chord diagrams in this book show what that formula is

THE SECRET IS TO FIRST

UNDERSTAND THE MAJOR SCALE and to know that

THE KEY TO MUSIC IS THE MAJOR SCALE

The practical theory module shows examples using a keyboard as this makes it easy to understand the basics of chord and scale theory

This is written with the beginner in mind, you do not need to read music and is very easy to follow

Once understood you should be able to understand and find both chords and scales for yourself, not just for guitar but other instruments too
