    I saw a artical on a book you wrote about chords a while back, I was wondering what exactly your book covered.
    Some things I'm interested in are Voice leading, Tension notes, Inversions, and voicings. Also is the book mostly words, or mostly fret board diagrams?
    Thanks,

    Thanks for inquiry.

    The book has way too many words :D

    It is chock full of theory. It has few diagrams but does have notation and TAB. It deals a great deal with Voice Leading and voicings but not too much on inversions. It also deals a great deal with chord substitutions and reharmonizations.

    Here is a link to the Table of Contents:
