This indispensable book approaches guitar chords in a whole new way, explaining and organising chords with the songwriter in mind. For the first time, the guitar-playing songwriter can find all the chords that work well together grouped together in a visually engaging format, key by key, from major to minor. Only a basic knowledge of guitar chords is required to use this book, although it will appeal to the experienced musician just as much as the beginner. Much more than just a reference book, The Guitar Player's Songwriting Bible throws out unexpected, habit-breaking chord ideas that will keep the creative process flowing. Unlike other chord books, this book includes a chapter full of exercises that will help the reader put theory into practice, and an inspirational catalogue of essential playlists from the great songwriters of all time, from Schubert to Dylan.
