A typical piece of music actually follows a certain set of “rules,” when it comes to which chords are used. As long as you know which chords “belong” then you can create music that has a certain “unified” feel to it or play chords along songs effortlessly. The chords that belong are called diatonic chords, and this book lists them and their common combinations (progressions).
The book includes 624 chord diagrams in 70 pages, organized in 12 chapters, one per key. Each chapter includes:
- Popular Songs: list of 25 popular songs that can be played using the chord diagrams of the chapter
- Diatonic chords: 24 diatonic chord diagrams for the major, natural minor, melodic and harmonic minor key
- Chord progressions: 28 chord diagrams grouped in 8 chord progressions
