   Very Helpful Book
Makes sense and is a compliment to the CAGED system of learning cords, helps with chord construction and flow and introduces good cord positioning.
   Whack Stuff, Man!
I am blown away by the first few rows of chord voicings that exist after reading just the first few pages. Chords I never heard of like E7b5b9! Absolutely Whack - stuff I pumped to learn more about!
   Review of jazz chemistry
is a comprehensive list of chords and their relationships, but I felt that more examples of practical application, e.g. In jazz standards, say :
   Incredibly insightful and informative for any guitarist
It is a great book. It ties guitar with music theory, if you already have a background there, but no theory beyond what is given and a guitar on which one can experiment. It is more of a guide as to what sounds good on a guitar and why in as straightforward a way as possible. There’s a ton of chords for straight reference, shortcuts and the usual guitar best practices scattered throughout as well.
   Timeless chord bible.
I got my first copy of this book about forty years ago, but lost it in a move, so I recently picked up another copy. It is so full of chords and ideas from a new great that I never run out of true chord voicings to experiment with. This book is a steal when compared to the price of a guitar lesson. It is NOT for beginners or for whiners. I highly recommend this to any guuitarist who wants to be an accomplished player. Parts are written by hand. You will find many chord charts, no tab, but don 't worry if you can 't read music, as there is very little of it. In this book, there is an overwhelming amount of information. Don 't expect to swallow it as a coarse guitar single and done. You can enjoy it and keep it one bite at a time. For good reason, the old book is still relevant and is spoken about.
   Super Comprehensive:
Also enjoyable reading if that's something that would appeal to you. This is definitely not an intro book... To get the most out of this publication, you should be an experienced guitarist who knows his way around the fret board and has decent fret-hand technique. It also helps if you have a good technique for flat picking, hybrid picking andor open hand fingering.
   Look for something more modern and enjoyable.
I won 't pretend to like this book. It is hard to get into. It produces a rather encyclopedic, esoteric approach, which leaves me uninspired. I tried coming back to this book with an open mind, but find myself disappointed each time I do. Guitar is meant to be fun, keep it up.
   Phenomenal resource
I've been playing informally for about 10 years now, so I am not a silly '' player by any stretch of the imagination. I have, however, a basic understanding of the nuances and this guide is the perfect fit for me. Very excited to see where my playing goes as I work through it - it has given me the push I needed to really grow in skill and enjoyment.
   It's not an easy read but there is a lifetime of info
Classical Book : If you play guitar, you should have a copy. It is not an easy read, but there is a lifetime of info here.
   Great Guitar Chord Book
The information and step by step process is great. I haven't yet gotten all the way through it, but I understand how things fit together in a way I never did before. I would recommend this book to anyone who really wants to understand how chords work and what alternatives to use for each chord progression.
