Moveable guitar chord shapes based on the CAGED guitar system. Rather than presenting the same shapes as different chords when moved up or down the fret-board, Chords for Guitar is a reference of over 200 unique shapes for more chord types (just over 60) from the commonly used chords such as major, minor, sus2, sus4, add9 and 7th chords to further extended chords, altered chords and inversions, enabling you to find many more chords yourself and get a better understanding of the fret-board. The root note location within all of the guitar chords is clearly marked out enabling you to transpose its moveable shape up and down the fret-board. Each chord type has a question to make sure you're on track to being able to locate guitar chords yourself; shift the root note to its note name location (e.g. C, F#, G etc.) apply the chord shape, then check the answer at the back. Theory and chord construction are explained using piano keys for the simplicity of its linear layout of notes, then applied to the six-string guitar, from the basics of using odd numbered intervals (e.g. 1, 3, 5 etc.) to the compound intervals within extended chords and alterations.
"Chords For Guitar is written in a concise and clear manner that will be easy to understand by anyone with basic music knowledge. A consistent and simple approach that will prove to be a great tool for those hoping to expand their knowledge on the fret-board." -- Danny McCrum, Professional Guitarist (New Zealand) "At the School of Guitar we always use the CAGED system but we have never seen it applied so well to all chords. I love the way each transposable version of the chord is linked to an open chord. Simply the best book of chords we have seen." -- Cormac O Caoimh, School of Guitar (Cork Ireland) "Gareth Evan's guitar chord book is one of the most thorough and in-depth books I have ever seen. If you're armed with one of these books, you will have everything you will ever require to know all about chords." -- Tony Cox, Award winning Acoustic guitarist (South Africa) "For those students of guitar who are looking for an explanation of this famed system of learning the guitar fretboard, in a relatively fast, painfree and efficient manner, this is a wonderful book. You will find many subtle chords that you hadn't expected were easily movable." -- Marion Arts, Guitar Teacher, Performer & Composer (New Zealand) "I had wanted to start playing less with a capo, and more with an ability to transpose chords just by being more familiar with the fret board in it's entirety. This book teaches you exactly this. Highly recommended." -- Rebecca Cullen, Performing Musician & Composer (UK)
