Ditto to that. It’s good as a method or just for dipping into for reference.

No... ..I think it's a great learning aid .....just happened to be the nearest thing handy to be used to stop me scratching the desk with the mouse ...and then I can flick it open ...I often sit at the computer strapped into an accordion or something.....

One it’s failings (IMO), is that it doesn’t have “real world” examples of the chords, as they might appear in a song, to help put them into a context, and scale fingerings to help link them together.

Still a great book though..

Looks to be just what I need! Thanks for mentioning it. We'll have to keep the thread going as we work through it, maybe we can provide examples for each other of where the patterns fit when we find them?
