Steve Lukather (TOTO), Vernon Reid (Living Colour) and a lot of other professionals practice from this book. Ted Greene is very respected in the guitar world. If you want to break through boundaries of chord theory, and general guitar practice, you would do well to intensively study this book.

funky, transcendental, the rabbit hole of chord books. NOT for beginners.

Hello I am a classical guitarist/theory student and I would recommend Ted Green's book to guitarists only after they went through jack petersons book,chords galore systematic approach to voicing chords on the guitar so that you can learn a concrete method for the chord construction.Ted Green presents lots of very advanced chords but for some reason doesn't give lucidity in speech about the construction/sure the transpose the chords up a fourth is great and so are all of the charts I just think that any beginning jazz guitarist would be better off if they check out chords galore first and then bought this.I am a level two theory student and I have some experience with this kind of stuff and transposition/going through college for performance/theory/composition.

Greene takes the study of chords and turns it into a science. This is the most exhaustive (and exhausting!) chord book I have ever read. I appreciate Greene stressing the importance of chord use rather than just telling you what the chords are. I would recommend this book to ANY guitarist no matter what skill level they are.
