Chords for Kids (Pick Up and Play)

Quick Start, Easy Diagrams

Chords for Kids is a handy resource for children and early
learners of guitar and keyboard. Chords are one of the most important
ways that children can learn about music. They provide a fast route into
playing with others and encourage a feeling for structure and
composition. The simple and clean layout provides chord diagrams on each
spread, for both guitar and keyboard, allowing a parent or teacher to
explain easily. Using a simple tab-per-key approach, it covers all of
the basic chords in each key, including majors, minors, triads, fourths,
sixths, sevenths and ninths. Some variations are included at the back
for further exploration. With notation and TAB.
