Guy's Grids Book
Guy's Grids, a new book by Guy McRoskey, tackles the common struggle of chord mastery for guitar players.
The book includes over 2,000 open chord forms and over 700 moveable chord forms. With 228 pages, Guy's Grids is divided into four major tabbed sections: Open Chord Grids, Moveable Chord Grids, Open Chord Index, and Moveable Chord Index. Each of the grid pages has the same column and row format, designed in a logical manner to clearly demonstrate chord relationships.
The columns pertain to chord families (major, dominant, minor, and diminished). The top row contains triads, and the lower rows are sequentially arranged to display chords created from these triads by the inclusion of a 7th, 6th, 9th, 11th, or 13th scale degree.
Effectively, the grid page promotes contextual learning by presenting related chords in logical proximity to one another.
Each grid page includes a practice progression utilizing the chord forms on that page, and the enclosed CD contains a play-along track for each practice progression providing a tool for enhancing memory retention and playing skills.
Pricing & Availability
Guy's Grids will be available in May, 2009 at select retailers and directly online.
