    The Guitarists’ Guide to Common Chord Progressions is an excellent method book, I wish it had been available when I first learnt to play guitar. It is a valuable body of work for both beginner and experienced player, I highly recommend it. It provides beginners with a highly effective system of learning chords applied to the most frequently occurring chord progressions, working through all the keys. This smart approach provides a solid foundation and understanding of the musical principles while developing a wide repertoire. For the more experienced player it is a thorough reference, and an essential teaching tool for those with students. All of the musical concepts involved are very clearly and concisely explained at the start of each new section. The reason why certain progressions are so effective and how to harmonise the scale is well covered. Arpeggios are introduced and exercises showing fingerings help to develop the building blocks for melodies and lead improvisation. How to... More > construct pentatonic scales and their variants is clearly taught, and good guidance on making them fit the chords of the progression, either emphasising tonality or intentionally giving ambiguity. The Modes are explored and guidance given on appropriate modes for each chord in a progression. Appendices provide detail on the harmonised scale, suspensions, variant minor scales & blues scales, diminished, augmented and whole tone scales, chord substitution, and there is a very good explanation on the cycle of fifths. Diagrams throughout the book are clear and easy to understand.< Less
