I've had this book for over four years at the time of writing this review and have been playing guitar since 1991 (30 years). Although most musicians rely on their ears first and foremost, in my opinion, "The Chord Wheel" still offers the easiest way to visualise chord groupings. My son is learning to play the saxophone and is becoming interested in popular music and the chord wheel front cover was the first utility I turned to in order to explain the structure and writing style of well known song writers. I applied it to the songs that Brian May and Freddie Mercury wrote for Queen and considered the different instruments they primarily use to compose music and their different musical backgrounds. This helped me contextualise why there are lot of flat minor chords in Freddie's music, for example, and the structure of simplicity of certain popular guitar power chords and rock progressions.

Wheel on front of book attached only by a tiny brass fastener to thin cardboard. Of course, this gave way after only a hour or so leaving me with a plastic disk and a 12 page pamphlet that’s a bit thin on information. If only they’d put as much effort in attaching the wheel as they did the cardboard advert inside. Good idea, poor quality.
