Unlock the inner mechanism of chords
The first step to writing your own music and creating your own chord progressions is understanding the chemistry of the chords. Understanding what makes a chord and why the C major chord is the C major chord.
That’s exactly what we’ve designed this book to do. It’ll break down the chords you know and love, teach you what’s inside and how it is constructed, all in plain English.
Then it’ll give you the tools you need to string multiple chords together and create your own chord progressions. It’ll also teach you what chords go together and how you too can create beautiful harmonies!
You’ll even learn how to play the same chord in different places on the fretboard using the CAGED system. And what shape to play in what context.
And to top it all, the book includes practical applications of the theory in multiple chord progressions that you can pick up and jam away with!
We start with the basics and help you along to the more advanced chordal concepts. And don’t worry if you don’t understand some of the below – it’s all explained in detail inside.
