To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Looking for a minimalist piece of work? You've found it. This is a book of guitar chords and almost nothing else. There is an active table of contents. That's GREAT! The chord representations are formatted perfectly and are easy to read on a standard Kindle, Kindle phone app. or computer. BRAVO! The book is billed as "beginner" yet there isn't a shred of instruction, no "key", for the beginner to understand the whole picture. That's BAD!
There is a serious problem which the author needs to address, correct and republish his revisions through Amazon. The TOC starts with C chords but the first four chords depicted are actually the G and G6 chords. The next page picks back up with C chords but omits the C and C6 set. That could cause problems for the beginner. This needs to be taken care of ASAP. Perhaps something got left out at the beginning since my kindle showed a jump in percentage from 1-23 with nothing but the TOC, copyright, title and author between those locations.
Additionally, I think it would be helpful if the author were to include a "key page" which explains all the numbers and symbols used in reference to playing a chord. Yes, I understand that most guitarists already know what the representations mean and how to read them...but, remember when you didn't? I feel this addition would make the book a tad more user friendly.
There's no need to worry about lousy writing in this offering because there is no text...just chords, chords and more chords. I'm good with that!
In any event, if the author were to correct these issues and update the corrections through Amazon, so that the update will apply to previously purchased edition's, I would rate this 5 stars. As is, it gets 3 1/2.
