Allan Holdsworth – Melody Chords For Guitar

Influential fusion player Allan Holdsworth provides guitarists with a simplified method of learning chords, in diagram form, for playing accompaniments and for playing popular melodies in “chord-solo” style. Covers: major, minor, altered, dominant and diminished scale notes in chord form, with lots of helpful reference tables and and diagrams. He uses fretboard ‘chord scale’ diagrams to illustrate the musical philosophy behind his work, but don’t expect the usual ‘chord charts’. He does not teach you to play like he does; there is not much music theory here, in the sense of which chords go together, as befits his feeling that he doesn’t want to say what is the ‘right’ thing to do.
He does, however, give you his theory regarding chord formation and expects you to do the work to get familiar with and to advance in your own style. This is a challenging project for any musician, but it is more satisfying in the end than simply learning transcriptions note-for-note.
Reaching for the uncommon chord contains a number of transcriptions with more traditional chord diagrams and solos transcribed in standard notation and tabular form if you want to learn some of his tunes to get an idea of how he actually plays; ‘melody chords’ tells you more about how he thinks, and is a great tool alone or with the reh instructional video.
