Alfred Music Publishing, the world leader in educational print music publishing since 1922, is proud to announce the release of Guitar Chord Resource, a 424-page guide to playing and using chords, produced in partnership with National Guitar Workshop.
Designed for guitarists of all skill levels, Guitar Chord Resource is the perfect one-stop source for exploring guitar chords. Written in both music notation and TAB, nearly every chord is included with exercises and detailed explanations that teach how to apply, interpret, strum, fingerpick, and transpose them. Additionally, guitarists can learn to read and interpret lead sheets (song charts) using flex, or shell, voicings. Ideas for embellishing and ornamenting open chords, plus tips for mastering and connecting chords, inversions, and string sets across the entire fretboard are included.
A chord encyclopedia containing more than 5,000 chords, along with comprehensive lessons in theory and harmony, is also included. As a bonus, the accompanying MP3 CD demonstrates every example found in the book.
The National Guitar Workshop is dedicated to bringing the best in music education to guitarists, bassists, keyboardists, drummers, and vocalists regardless of style of music or level of ability. Their highly developed courses foster meaningful experiences through performance instruction and supportive learning environments.
As part of Alfred's ongoing commitment to improving the environment, the instructional resource is printed on 100% recycled paper.
Guitar Chord Resource Book & CD (00-38873) is now available for $29.99 at music retail stores and at Alfred.com/guitar.
