The book uses the unique integrated chord wheel to teach readers how to play every chord with five basic hand shapes using the CAGED system.
Client: The Bright Press / Quarto Group
Side one of the double sided Chord Wheel shows you five different ways to play any Major or minor chord on the guitar (five shapes for C, five shapes for F, etc.). This is a great reference tool for quickly looking up chords you haven’t played before, or for finding new shapes for the chords you already know. The outer disc rotates around a base with the changing chord information showing through die cuts.
Side two goes into more detail about each chord, including its “spelling” (which notes are used to build the chord), suggestions for substitute chords, suggested scales to use over the chord, and more.
A chord directory at the back of the book, arranged using the progressive CAGED system, shows how all chord types can be played
