    Hey guys... which is the best way to go about leaining new chords? I have been playing for around 4+1/2 years, but my knowledge of chords is still not much more than that of majors, minors & 7ths. I've found a few chord charts on the net. I basically want to know that once a learn a new chord, what should I do to know more about its usage, i.e. where and how should it be used and stuff.

    Also, my knowledge about music theory is quite low. Can anyone suggest any books that might help in this regard and where to find them in Mumbai? This site is really helpful and the stuff posted by Dennis was awesome, but I wanna go a little further on my own now...

    thts prbably bcoz maybe he hasnt really taken ny sort of serious guitar lessons... jus plays guitar 4 fun.. u kno.. whenevr he feels like he jus picks up his guitar and tries somethin... hardly spends half n hour a day.. maybe hardly plays his guitar once or twice in a week.. tht was me guessin :)

    prblm with not takin ny sort of lessons is tht aftr sometime u get saturated.. and dont kno wht more 2 play.. its da same stuff all ovr agn..

    download a software calld Chord Wizard 2.0... u can use it 10 times.. aftr tht ur trial period gets ovr n u hav 2 buy it.. it has got an awesome theory on guitar.. go 2 the tutorials section there and u wil find it.. my trial period is ovr.. but b4 it got ovr .. i saved all the tutorial pages in jpg format :grin:.... *smart* :grin:
    or u can ask me.. i'l post the stuff here... actually not sure whthr its ok 2 post here.. in case the mods hav an objction 2 postin lessons frm a s/w.
