That being said, however, there are some omissions which should be addressed and some corrections to be made as well.
I think that when an author bills his work as being for "beginners", he/she should assume that "beginners" might encompass all stages of knowledge, from never-strummed-a-chord, to people who aren't quite intermediate players but don't need help with these chords. That being said, I find it disconcerting that there is no indication as to which strings should be strummed or omitted. If a beginner learns to simply strum all the strings when playing these chords, than he/she is learning a bad lesson, one which is difficult to correct once ingrained. The author should give a mention to string and finger numbering, as well as standard X's and O's to indicate which strings to play.
I also feel that "rating" chords is detrimental to beginning guitarists, as it predisposes them to work on the "easy" ones and bypass the ones labeled "hard".
There is a problem with the Fm chord photo vs illustration, which has been pointed out by another reviewer but not corrected as of yet. Additionally, the first sentence on the welcome page states that the book contains "all the tabs you will need to practice your guitar theory". Perhaps he meant to say "chords", because there are no true "tabs" represented in this book.
Hopefully the author will see fit to make some corrections and additions to the guide and do a bit of editing as well.
Finally, there are two sexes on this planet, male and female.Read more ›
