Get ready to give your left hand a workout! Pete Huttlinger has created a "video chord library" that's a must-have for every serious guitarist. This crash course is designed to show you all the important chords and fingerings you'll need, from the easiest shapes to some challenging finger-twisters.

Pete has developed a unique and effective study technique he calls "Say It and Play It." This is an powerful way to memorize root notes by playing chromatic scales and applying chords to the root location. It's like your personal GPS system on the fingerboard, helping you lock in exactly where you need to be on the neck.

The lesson grows in complexity and sophistication, leading to chord changes for Sweet Georgia Brown and All Of Me, as well as tips on all kinds of music - from folk and blues to pop, country and swing. As you play exercises and progressions that make use of these positions, you'll be on your way to becoming a well-rounded guitarist with a world of chords at your fingertips.

Excellent!

I'm really a drummer who dabbles with guitar so this video was very effective in getting the concepts across for me! Covered a lot of ground without being overwhelming. Really inspired me to put my drum sticks down! RIP Pete!
