About the Author

J. Bruce Jones is a musician, author, graphic designer, software publisher, video producer and the creator of Essential Chord Charts for Guitar, Mandolin, Ukulele and Banjo and the Left Hand Chords books. Containing guitar, mandolin, ukulele and banjo chord fingering and music charts for playing rock, folk, country and blues music.

I started learning guitar about 10 years ago and my music and chord charts came about from my search for clear basic music information to help me learn when I started playing the guitar. Over the years I found lots of the charts on the web and in books but most of them were too complicated or incomplete or poorly presented. So I started laying out my own charts and then started sharing them with my friends.

As I searched the web I wanted to learn the basic shapes for the major, minor, and seventh chords. I wanted to learn how to move up the neck of the guitar and play like the guys you see in real bands. Arpeggios what are they and how to play and apply them? That formed the basis for Essential Chord Charts book.

Left Hand Chords developed from readers who asked if I could take my Essential Chords book and convert it over for left hand players. Left hand players would describe to me the process they went through to figure how to play traditional chords but with the opposite hand. It took a bit to do but I did figure it out, along with the help of some readers who gave great comments and suggestions.

My intent for both books is to make the charts easy to read, informative and great resource for when you are practicing or jamming with your friends.

Format: Paperback
As a leftie,I've always had do my own conversions scrawled on scraps, so this is the best chord book I've ever seen or had. So many instruments in one beautifully laid out book. Great value for money (under $4 per instrument). An essential tool for any musician. Suitable for beginners and experienced musicians alike. The blank sheets are a great addition to the perfect workbook. Not a cost, an investment! All you talented right handers- Don't forget the Right Hand Chords for Guitar Mandolin Ukulele & Banjo - money well spent!

Bought to learn how to play ukulele left handed. Out of 60 pages two address the ukulele and that's nothing but drawings of cords. May be fine for the other instruments but useless for ukulele,
