This book for "beginner guitarists" works well on my Kindle, BlackBerry and computer. The photos are clear, and the illustrations are large enough to be seen. Wonderful!

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.

My teen son wants to learn how to play guitar, but refused to actually read any of the "how to" books for beginners, just looked at the pictures. This book is perfect-- few words and lots of "how to" pictures! I have actually seen him using it (when he didn't know I was watching, God forbid...!) I only wish it had sound so he could hear what the chords sound like. he won't use DVD or CDs either. He's not doing too bad so far--!

This is a brief, but helpful basic guitar chords reference. The photographs are clear, as are the chord diagrams. For a beginning guitar student such as myself, this is a handy reference.

For the Fm(hard) location 25 of 34 of my kindle. The picture is of the Chord. But the illustration Is of a Fm maj7/E chord. The E on the 3rd (D) string should Move Up a half step to F. Still, not bad for 99 cents

This book is superior to many others on the market. Buy this book as being the bible on chords for the beginner and experts.
