Cover CHORD CHART and MAJOR Bock SCALE CHART Gover HOW TO USE THIS BOOK This Handy Guide shows the notation, fingering, ‘and keyboard diagrams for all the important chords used in modern popular music. Only the most practical position of each chord is shown. The Position given is the one that is generally best for use in playing accompaniments with the left hand, There are four pages for each letter and they are designated A1, A2, A3, Aa for easy references. Two Bass Notes are given for each chord, The Fundamental, or root bass note, is given first and is the one most frequently used with the chord The alternate bass note, given second, isparticularly useful in playing rhythmic accompaniments—the left hand first plays the fundamental bass note, followed by one or more chords; then the alternate bass note is played, followed by one or more chords, Note that double sharps (x ) and double flats (4) ‘are used in this book only where it is impractical to spell the chords with simpler enharmonic notation. (A double sharp raises a note two half steps. A double flat lowers @ note two half steps.) Al Alfred Publishing Co,, Inc. * P.O.

For example, any major chord is formed by combining the 1st, 3rd and Sth tones of the Major Scale. (See Chord Chart outside back cover under Major.) By applying this rule to the Major Scale Chart (also on outside back cover) you will see that the Tst, 3rd and 5th tones of the A Major Scale are A, Cand E, respectively. ‘Thus the A Major chord consists of the notes A, CF and E, By using these two charts any chord contained in this book may be quickly determined. Note that even though certain chords theoretically contain up to six tones, in practice some of these tones can be left out. (See A13 on page 4.)
