This book is intended for those who have a basic knowledge of reading music, and who would like to know more about the construction of the many varied chords which are seen in modern band parts and music books. For instance, piano music of many current pop songs no longer relies on the long standing melody doubled in right hand formation. Instead, because of perhaps a vague melody or one which does not transfer well to being played in single-note form, vocal/piano copies now often carry the melody entirely separately, with an independent accompaniment for the piano, based on the rhythm of the recorded arrangement. For this reason it is important to understand all the chord symbols which appear, and how they are made up. A study of this book will help to clear up many doubts and misunderstandings. The keyboard immediately below each photograph diagrams the chord being played. The two additional diagrams show 1st and 2nd inversions of the chord.
