Guitar Chord Books

Learn guitar chords with our comprehensive selection of guitar chord books, videos and DVD's. A guitar chord is two or more notes strummed together at the same time. Chords on the guitar are often played when the guitar is used as a rhythm instrument. The player will strum the various chords, backing up or providing the rhythm for a lead instrument or vocal. Chords have various voicings, which is how the notes in the chord are arranged and stacked upon each other. Our selection of guitar chord books provide countless chords in every key and alternate voicings.
