Designed for beginning as well as advanced guitarists, Guitar Chord Resource is your one-stop source for exploring guitar chords. Find nearly every chord under the sun, then learn how to apply, interpret, strum, fingerpick, and transpose them. Included are ideas for embellishing and ornamenting open chords, plus tips for mastering and connecting chords, inversions, and string sets across the entire fretboard. Additionally, learn to read and interpret lead sheets (song charts) using flex, or shell, voicings. This is just the tip of the iceberg because you will be referring to and learning from this book for years to come. An MP3 CD is included to demonstrate the examples in the book.
