The Guitar Chord Master Series

For many guitar players, the process of learning chords involves a chord chart or chord dictionary and a lot of memorization. We believe there's a better way. That's why we created The Guitar Chord Master series, dedicated to teaching you chords in a progressive manner while you learn common chord progressions and strum patterns you can use to play the songs you love.

Book 1: Master Basic Chords

This first book in the series gives you everything you need to master basic chords and progressions: easy-to-follow instructions, illustrations, and diagrams; common strum patterns; example songs; and plenty of practice exercises. Available in right and left-handed editions.
