Howard Morgen: Through Chord Melody & Beyond: Guitar Book & Enhanced CDIt contains two parts with a total of 13 chapters. In addition to being an amazing insightful book with systematically arranged musical examples, it also comes with audio examples and 2 bonus online videos featuring Martin demonstrating key techniques. The first part has a very logical progression, beginning with one string scales in the lower strings. As we move on, Martin adds guide tones and creates movement in the the voices. As the book progresses, Martin introduces how we can add melodies to these structures to decorate them. Some parts appear to be deceptively simple and some other parts are challenging to play and to visualise at times, depending on your level.

Many guitarists accumulatea large repertoire of "guitar chords" which, in themselves, are pleasant sounding and, perhaps, well suited to rhythm playing and variousaccompaniments. But a repertoire of "isolated" chords may remain in the players mind as disconnectedchunks of harmony, not easily applied to chord melody playing.
