    Before you fork out for books, there are a lot of resources on the web that provide introductions to good database design. In my not-so-extensive experience teaching databases (ms-access), I found that the relational concept was the most difficult for a lot of students to grasp. Those that did, went on to create databases that were useful and extensible, and not just uber-spreadsheets.My recommendation is that you start with this. Learn the relational model, data normalization, denormalizing for performance etc. Until you have understood this, don't even bother looking at data models, or trying to learn SQL..... they won't make sense, and you will probably just end up creating elaborate spreadsheets.

    Dear vishwa.g,
    This is the easiest and the best way to play F Maj chord if one cannot play the barre chord.

    e |--1--|-----|-----|-----
    B |--1--|-----|-----|-----
    G |-----|--2--|-----|-----
    D |-----|-----|--3--|-----

    The above chord tab is self-explanatory. The 1 finger should be kept in such a way that it simultaneously covers the first frets each of the first and the second string. The last two strings A and E should not be played. This chord F Maj has its root on first string E and fourth string D.

    My guitar teacher showed me an exercise where you use all four fingers of your left hand fretted on adjacent strings and adjacent frets. So maybe you play index at fret 1 on the top e, then middle on fret 2 on the b, ring on fret 3 on the g and pinky on fret 4 on the D. Play the chord, and make sure you're playing it cleanly, no buzzing. Then you repeatedly play the chord, then release the pressure from your left hand fingers, so the chord will be muted. So it's like on off on off on off, or squeeze release squeeze release with the left hand.It seems (at least to me) that with such a fretting pattern, putting the pressure on and taking it off in quick repeats really works out the thumb and index finger strength, which is what you need for barring chords like the F chord. You'll find after not too long doing that exercise (like a minute, maybe less), you will start to feel the strain in your thumb. When that happens, take a rest, maybe switch position of your fingers and try again. Don't work it too hard or make it painful, just do little bits of it here and there while you're practising. I hope this is clear to you.

    There's no need to be frightened by a symbol that says something like Cm13, A7sus 4 or even D/C. Working these things out is just a matter of arithmetic - sometimes tiresome, but arithmetic just the same.
    But here's something that might help. The deal is this - if you have the type of chord you are looking for (maj 7, dim, add9 etc) written out on the keynote of C, you should be able to work out the notes in the chord you want by transposing - just as you do when you writeout a tune in a key that is comfortable for your instrument.
    So, if I give you the chord of C7 (C, E, G, Bb), you should be able to transpose the notes to the key of D to make D7, to the key of A to make A7 or to Bb to make Bb7 - and so it goes. (By the way, the answers are: D7 = D, F#, A, C; A7 = A, C#, E, G; Bb7 = Bb, D, F, Ab.)
    You'll find a short appendix explaining very briefly how this arithmetic works. I have tried keep it simple and practical! Swots who are into composing might like to know that there is also a body of knowledge about how chords follow on from each other - but people go to college full time to learn that stuff!
