A very basic no-frills does what it has to do reference book May 10, 2008
Upon buying this book, I wanted to learn chords and scales so that I could begin to play improv piano. Unfortunately, the book was very simple. Each page is dedicated to one key (ie. C, C7, D, ect.) And really doesn't give any sense of how the chords work together. Currently, I'm still using it to memorize the chords and maybe in the long run it'll pay off, but it felt a bit too separated for me. As music seems to always work best when certain chords compliment each other, showing you a connection in your head has always been most successful at teaching me. This doesn't do that for me.
In conclusion, buy this book if you want a reference guide for finger placement for a chord you know. Don't buy it if you are interested in learning chords for the first time.
Great book from the Piano Guy Jan 7, 2008
If you want to quickly learn to play the piano, watch Scott Houston tv show on pbs "The Piano Guy". Well, this book is just as great teaching you the chords and techniques too.
C hord book Nov 19, 2007
It's a complete book of chords. I'll be using it forever and as long as I play piano I'll need it.
The scale & chord guide arrived within a week in great condition. Exactly as advertised, ordered, and expected.
instant sacale and chord guide for keyboards Jul 23, 2007
This is a great book for popular piano. It explains all different kinds of chords without a bunch of difficult theory. If you just want to learn to play from a fake book, get this book and get going! If you want to be a classical pianist, better hire a piano teacher.
