Editorial Reviews

Andres Delikat
""In his book GUITAR: Probable Chords, Mark J. Sternal thoroughly and efficiently lists all basic chords, and even their mutants. Not only does he list them, but unlike other guitar books, he explains them in the context of all 12 keys. As a teacher I believe that this book has the best explanation of extended chords on the market. I would recommend this book to all of my colleagues and students."
Music Instructor at the Academy of Music and Art, and Gainesville Guitar Academy

"Mark John Sternal has done it again. This guy has a wonderful ability to take what is truly complex and through words and diagrams, convince the reader it's not as tough as it really is. "Guitar: Probable Chords" is a superior guitar chord book, or rather as the author puts it, "a chord, key encyclopedia" in which Sternal applies his own practical rules to explain chord structure and how it relates to each key. The book offers basics for new-bees, intermediate, advanced chords/keys and a section called "all" which includes neutral chords such as suspended 4th and so on. The book is easy to follow and Mark's instructions for maximizing learning are clear and again, make sense. Making sense of often fuzzy theory and demystifying the complex is one of the true attributes of "Guitar: Probable Chords." If you own Guitar: Total Scales Techniques and Applications" you'll most certainly want to add this wonderful reference to your learning arsenal."
Guitar Digest Magazine
Chris O'Byrne
"Mr. Sternal expertly untangles the mess of theory behind chord/key relationships, and in the process gives you a glut of useful shapes and songwriting tips. Whereas some chord books offer 34,276 diagrams and not a hint of direction, Probable Chords presents a clear-cut method for learning the most essential fingerings and then putting them to work in a musical context."
Guitar One Magazine
John Collins
"...Mark John Sternal has already authored seven best-selling instructional books on guitar. He's often referred to as the world's greatest guitar teacher. ...Successfully putting into words how to play guitar and how to make it a fun passion and pastime, ...is what Mark Sternal's life mission is all about.
