Abzolute One Hour Guitar Chord Method
An understanding of harmony is perhaps a musician's greatest asset. As guitarists we can all learn chord shapes, memorize scales or work out licks from Tablature. But music IS harmony, and the knowledge of how chords are constructed is the key to a far broader understanding of it. Without harmony we cannot decipher the chord to well-known songs, picture guitar parts in our heads or effortlessly contribute the right vocal accompaniment when required. The Only Complete (Abzolute) Guitar Chord Method clearly demonstrates that getting to know the make-up of chords can be both easy and enjoyable.
Reijo Hiltunen shows that there are key elements to all chords. The choice and positioning of these elements dictates the chord's name and type. As we begin to recognize the elements - root, third, fifth, etc. - we can watch how they shift from chord to chord within a piece of music, creating melodies and counter melodies as they go. The ability to transpose chords in different keys and instantly recognize chords and chord sequences then becomes a matter of course.
Without guidance it can take years to unravel this "mystery". Those fortunate few with innate
musical understanding use this same method instinctively. Study it and you can unlock the
secret to truly understanding harmony - the real foundation of musical awareness.
