The Big Six Core Chords - F7, Four Voicings
The Big Six Core Chords, Level I - F7, four voicings.
The ** F7** is a 1 3 5 b7 of the major scale, based on the root of the chord. For F7 the chord tones are: F A C Eb.
These are the four F7 that will be used for deriving other chords.
There are far too many chord shapes to memorize thousands of shapes. From these four F7 chord voicings ALL other 4-part chords can be derived. And, if all else fails in trying to remember or build a chord you can always go back to the F7 and establish a frame of reference.

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
