“Guitar Chords in Context” is both instructional and a great general guitar and music resource. Taught in the traditional style with standard music notation references, guitar skills are wrapped in a context of theory and application. I especially like the way he introduced chords using just the three treble strings, adding the bass strings later . The reading level of this book is appropriate for middle school to adult. Diagrams, photos, and illustrations clarify intent and technique. – Amazon Review
