Chords for Kids Easy to Read - Easy to Play for Guitar and Keyboard by Jake Jackson

Chords for Kids is a handy resource for children and early learners of guitar and keyboard. Chords are one of the most important ways that children can learn about music. They provide a fast route into playing with others and encourage a feeling for structure and composition. The simple and clean layout provides chord diagrams on each spread, for both guitar and keyboard, allowing a parent or teacher to explain easily. Using a simple tab-per-key approach, it covers all of the basic chords in each key, including majors, minors, triads, fourths, sixths, sevenths and ninths. Some variations are included at the back for further exploration.
