Mel Bay Publications has released a series of children’s chord books for young pickers getting started on banjo, mandolin or ukulele.
Each book runs 24 pages and presents the chords systematically, starting with simple shapes and moving later to more difficult fingerings. The chords are taught as they relate to common chord progressions and are shown both in extra large diagrams and photographs.
The books sell for $5.99 each and while they were written with young students in mind, Mel Bay suggests that they are “great for beginners of all ages.”
