Overview

An easy-to-use guide to finding just the right chords to use with any melody. If you have ever composed a melody and then been at a loss as to which basic chords to play along with it . . . if you have ever wondered how to experiment with more complex chord substitutions . . . if you have ever wondered how the "experts" go about choosing which chords to use with their melodies . . . then this book is for you. Through the use of clear, color-coded charts and detailed step-by-step instructions, this book will show you at a glance exactly which chords are the best choices for use over any melody note in any key. In addition, the author includes extended-and often hilarious!-essays describing how he came to develop the charts included in this book, and how his interest in chords lead him to explore the chords and melody in a well-known jazz song. Finally, there are charts-one for each of the 12 notes in a chromatic scale-listing the notes contained in 26 of the most common chords.
