'This is an excellent book and well worth the money. There are three positions given for each chord with the best fingerpositions shown as well as the function of each note in the chord. Slash chords are explained and a large number of modifiedchords are provided for the moreadvanced or ambitious player. I consider this book an great investment as I think it's very unlikelythat I will ever need to buy any other chord book. I'm looking forward to using this as a reference manual for many years.'
