"Looks fab. I particularly like the different ways of playing the A chord. The physical warm-up exercises for flexibility are also good. It is good that movable major and minor barre chords are shown as partial versions to make them initially easier, and beginners might find extra interest where near the back of the book easy open versions of other more exotic chords are shown, such as Dm(maj7), the "James Bond" chord."

“I like what’s been put together! The information covered in technical issues for beginners especially explaining the difference between chords on piano and guitar is great. I think starting with the small position chords for C and G etc and building up to full position is also really important for beginners. The picture diagrams of hand position is a nifty feature, I know lots of beginners respond more to visuals and will often revert to looking at the hand pictures rather than the chord diagrams.  Also think the added audio clips are a great feature so students can compare the sounds of their chords with the audio for reference There could be a couple of chord progressions at the end of each section (apart from the song suggestions at the end of the book) and strumming patterns. That would be an added feature that I think could work nicely, although this would make for a larger book and it is only £1.99 for the eBook. Otherwise I think what’s been put together is great :)”
Authors reply: Thanks for your feedback I do appreciate. Chord progressions and Strumming are actually two other (much longer) books I have in draft (but not yet written).
“It's a very comprehensive book containing chords from the beginning stages and beyond. Everything is very well explained with no stone left unturned. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who's starting out with the guitar.”

"Guitar chords for beginners is uniquely practical among beginner guitarist books, in that it presumes no prior knowledge, and its primary focus is to help the beginner get started with chords, rather than bamboozling them with too much information. To my mind this is the best way to keep new players engaged in their learning and give them the opportunity to progress. The descriptions and pictures of how to play the first batch of chords make learning from this book a more useful experience than many chord books, which often feature a mind-bogglingly endless ream of fret-board diagrams and dots.   If I were to offer a criticism it is that more emphasis could be placed on the method of moving from one chord to another, something that causes difficulty in a great many beginners, but to be fair the book is a book on guitar chords and it delivers exactly what it promises better than most."
