    The compete suite of Guy's Grids guitar education books in a single purchase!

    Guy's Grids: Complete Set gives you the full suite of Guy’s books in a single purchase. These 5 publications set a standard for modern guitar educational books. And, they provide a solid foundation for any guitarist – beginner to advanced. From scales to 2-string harmonies, from root-in-bass chords to inversions, from enharmonic chords to implied chords, this is a collection you will never outgrow. Enjoy all 5 publications at a single discounted price!

    Guy McRoskey redefined guitar educational texts with the 2009 publication of his Guy’s Grids suite – a series of instructional guides with a linear gridded layout that effectively cater all learning styles. Now you can buy the complete set of the original Guy’s Grids chordbook, Guy’s Scales, Modes, and Arpeggios, Chord Cousins, 2-String Harmonies and Inversion Immersion.

    More Than a chordbook, Guy's Grids is an instructional collection of over 2,000 open chord forms and over 700 moveable chord forms. The oversized book is divided into four major tabbed sections: Open Chord Grids, Moveable Chord Grids, Open Chord Index, and Moveable Chord Index.

    Guy’s Scales, Modes, and Arpeggios is a comprehensive and integrated presentation of all of the most commonly used guitar scales, modes, and arpeggios—in all regions of the fretboard.

    Chord Cousins was designed to facilitate the ongoing discovery of certain sets of chords that are closely related, but not in an obvious way. Guy has coined the term "Chord Cousins" to refer to two chords meeting the following criteria. (1) The two chords have different root notes, e.g. a G root and a D root. (2) The two chords must either have the same spelling (in which case the one chord is said to be "enharmonic" with the other) or have very similar spellings. Chord Cousins are important for use in jazz compositions (substitution), variations on melodies and in solos and for use in creating basslines.

    Learning chord inversions can be a slow and difficult process – much like learning a foreign language. Inversion Immersion was written to help guitarists become "fluent" in the "foreign language" of inversions. When learning a foreign language, "immersion" means being surrounded by others who speak that language. In the context of this book, it means playing progressions with lots and lots of inversions.

    2-String Harmonies consists of five oversized (11" x 17") laminated sheets which present two-string harmonic outlines of the most commonly used scales Major, Dorian, Mixolydian, Aeolian, and Harmonic Minor. The two-string harmonies are presented with a G tonic, but are moveable to any key.

                If you plan to study music, this is a great addition to your library, but if you're looking for a simple understanding on how to arrange chords, this is NOT the book. Very in depth and somewhat confusing,plus because it's not a refundable product you better make sure this is for you before forking out.

                Comments about Guy's Publishing Guy's Grids: Complete Set:

                These guides are a very systematic and visual tool for learning guitar chords, learning the fretboard, and understanding chord and music theory. I've barely scratched the surface of what these guides have to offer and I've learned so much. I would recommend them to anyone who is serious about gaining a deeper, fundamental understanding of the guitar. This is definitely a set of useful lifetime guitar/music reference materials that I'll keep handy where I practice and record.

                These are big books, particularly the Guy's Grids chord book (11"x17"). Some people may have an issue with the size, but I think it's great.

                Most everything about chords.

                      Of this type of resource, it's the best that I've encountered since "Chord Chemistry", by Ted Greene, 1971. The big main book is a bit cumbersome. I am in my 60's and will probably croak before I can absorb everything in this package, but I've already learned some new things that will improve my understanding of the guitar, and music, in general. Recommended, a good value.
