One of the finest books available on jazz guitar chords. Joe covers all the bases with two sections on chord forms and chord passages. Chords are divided into six categories: Major, Seventh, Augmented, Minor, Diminished, and Minor Seventh Flat Fifth, each showing substitutions and inversions that Joe would play when confronted with "basic" chord symbols. The chord passage section is divided into nine categories, including such topics as Major Sounds, Diminished Sounds, Augmented Sounds, Standard Patter Chord Substitutions, and other chord progression - related topics.

    Amazing ! If you don't understand, there's' only one reason, you need to buy a beginner /early intermediate book instead... That book is for advanced guitar player. One of the Most amazing book available, with the Joe Pass Guitar Style book !

  • March 08, 2007 Disappointed expectations

    I love Joe Pass, but his chord book is terrible. It makes no effort at all to make things easier, or more understandable, or more fun to do. Pedagogically, it's a failure and a waste of money.
