This is a book designed to upgrade the performance skills of intermediate guitar players to a point where they can be more productive and less unsure of themselves in a team environment ie. a band.

Wouldn't it be nice to actually KNOW all of the chords that are common in popular music instead of having to constantly look them up?
Wouldn't it be nice to know how to transpose -- seeing that it's not always possible to perform a song in the same key as the recording artist?
And wouldn't it be really nice to be able to "pull" the chords off of a recording because you are able to recognize that what you are hearing is "common"?
This book takes the mystery out of learning how to do these things.
The easiest and simplest way to think of keys is to think of them as a collection of notes that normally tend to sound well together. There is a reason why this is true. Remember that music is a mathematically precise language (played emotionally) and is logically based. All keys begin with a concept called a "scale".
