The Big Six Core Chords - F7, Four Voicings, Learning Process

The Big Six Core Chords - "F7", four voicings. From shape to chord tones to intervals and back again. Really, learning what a chord is made of.

From knowing the numeric chord formula of any chord you can get to the notes of that chord from it's corresponding major scale based on the same root. And, inversely from the names of the notes of a chord you can get to it's numeric chord formula.

For some chords it will be the intervals that come before the names of the chord tones, for other chords it might be the intervals that come first. The order doesn't matter, only the outcome.

End of Lesson - Thanks, Hope You Enjoyed It!

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books!Peter Rhee
