From the Publisher:

We are very excited about Mr. Arnold's Workbook series. The feedback we have received has validated our instincts that the books are a long-needed breakthrough in music education. Mr. Arnold has culled from his many years of teaching both privately and on the university level, and has provided information and teaching approaches which have never been presented in quite this way. The serious student will find the books to be a real "Rosetta Stone" for music theory and its application, while the professional musician will find them to be compendiums of valuable information and lifelong companions in the voyage of musical discovery.

We are also excited about the comping styles books which take the progressions examined in the Chord Workbooks and teach a student how to play them in a blues, jazz and funk style.

From the Author:

Chord Workbook for Guitar Volume One can benefit a beginner, intermediate or advanced student.

For the beginning guitarist the Chord Workbook for Guitar will help them to understand the basic building blocks of music i.e. music theory, and their direct application on their instrument. The student is not just learning fingering patterns, they are applying chords to songs and experiencing how they sound in a musical situation. The theory section is written in a style that anyone can understand. This gets the student off on the right foot to absorb what they are doing when they play chords or music in general. Students find the method I use to help them learn and remember chord forms is hard for a couple of weeks but eventually it really pays off; they find that they are able to remember large numbers of chords and know their exact names. My method involves two stages: learning where the root notes of each chord are on the guitar and then applying these chords to common song forms to hear the chords in a musical situation. These common song forms include the Blues, Minor Blues and Rhythm Changes. The Blues, Minor Blues and Rhythm Changes forms are also explained in another theory section so that the student understands what the component structures of these important contemporary music forms are.

The intermediate guitarist is usually a student who has holes in their knowledge of theory- they are familiar with a number of forms and progressions, but may not understand the underlying structures. This book contains the information the student needs to analyze and create progressions.

The advanced guitarist should know most of the chord voicings found in this book, but will find the harmonic superimposition theory section to be fascinating and useful. The theory section presents the 3 ways a dominant chord can resolve along with extensions that can be placed in front of a dominant chord. The progressions presented allow the student to see first hand how to apply this information. They include 12 versions of the blues, minor blues and rhythm changes, one in each key. It is also recommended that an advanced student use these progressions to create solo lines using the superimposed progressions as templates. Students in the New York University program are also required to sing through these progressions using solfege while strumming the root chord of the key. This develops not only an ability to understand how progressions relate to a key but helps to improve the ear and thus make the progression more part of one's musical language.
